From July 2019 to December 2021, EP committees participated in a total of 373 trilogue meetings with the Council and Commission. The bar graph below shows the number of trilogue meetings held by year since the beginning of the 2009-14 term, with a peak in 2013, notably reflecting decisions on programmes within the 2014-20 Multiannual Financial Framework. While the number held in the second half of 2019 is in line with the number five years previously, the number held in 2020 and 2021 is considerably lower than for 2015 and 2016, in large part due to the coronavirus crisis restricting possibilities to meet physically. In 2021, out of 129 trilogue meetings, 119 involved a single committee, while in 10 cases, two committees took part. The pie chart shows which parliamentary committees were most involved in trilogue in 2021, the second full year of the 2019-24 term. It highlights the eight most active committees in terms of trilogue meetings held, as a percentage of the total.
