The new budget of the European Union must consider vulnerable people and those most affected by the crisis

In the meeting of the Committee on Employment and Social Affairs on 2 September, I defended some considerations of the Group of Socialists and Democrats of the European Parliament on the general budget of the European Union for the year 2021.

We believe that we must dedicate our best efforts and financial resources to protect and help the most vulnerable and affected by the pandemic. Strengthening the European Social Fund Plus will be an important measure, as well as the different funds of social nature. We cannot achieve a true recovery in Europe without protecting the very young, our elders, people with some kind of disability, migrants or people at risk of poverty.
