2021-2027 MFF process in the European Council between February 2018 and December 2020

Including the orientation debate on 23 February 2018, the European Council addressed the MFF at 14 of its 26 meetings between January 2018 and December 2020.
Of these 14 meetings, 8 were important debates on the MFF, while at 6 others, EU leaders mainly took stock of the developments on this file. In comparison, over a three-year period, the 2014 2020 MFF negotiation process saw 22 European Council meetings, of which only 9 addressed the MFF issue, with 5 of those being significant and/or decisive discussions.
This listing shows that the number of European Council meetings has increased significantly over the last decade, but also that EU leaders have become even more involved and have dedicated more time to the MFF negotiations.
