EU 2015 accounts adopted: performance focus shows the EU budget is delivering

Today the European Commission published accountability reports on the implementation of the 2015 EU budget, bringing them all together for the first time. With the accounts set to receive a clean bill of health for the ninth year in a row, the package provides a comprehensive overview of how the EU budget is supporting the European Union’s political priorities, while being spent in line with EU rules. The reports put a particular emphasis on performance, thus making a big step forward in transparency and accountability and achieving one of the concrete outcomes of this Commission’s ‘Budget Focused on Results’ initiative.
