EU budget cuts down on cohesion funding that benefits Poland
PR dla Zagranicy
The European Union has approved its 2017 budget, in which 11 percent less year on year has been earmarked for the bloc’s cohesion policies, of which Poland is the main beneficiary.
But that does not mean earlier pledges will be withdrawn.
Half of the EU’s EUR 134 billion (PLN 600 billion) 2017 budget has been set aside to boost key initiatives for growth and create new jobs.
Compared to 2016, 11 percent more will be spent in 2017 on security and dealing with the migration crisis. (vb/pk)
