Total commitment appropriations for 2019 are up by 3.2 % in comparison with the 2018 budget. This is the result of increases in all headings, with the most significant in heading 4 ‘Global Europe’ (+12.4 %). The overall level of payment appropriations in 2019 is 2.4 % higher and can be considered moderate given last year’s ambitious growth of 54.7 %. In the 2019 budget, the largest increase of payment appropriations was agreed under heading 3 ‘Security and citizenship’ (+18.3 %) (Figure 9).
