On 28.09.2020, the Budgetary Control Committee will hold an exchange of views on the opinion to ECON/BUDG on establishing a Recovery and Resilience Facility. This is an unique instrument to address the shock to the EU caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The current proposal however falls short as regards the protection of the EU's financial interests. CONT proposals aim to remedy these shortcomings by making reference to the importance of the rule of law and emphasising sound financial management.
