General Affairs Council took note of a progress report of the Polish presidency
In public session, the Council took note of a progress report from the presidency on the EU's multiannual financial framework (MFF) for the 2014-2020 period.
Ministers generally supported the progress report, which they considered to be balanced and a good basis for future work.
The incoming Danish presidency expressed its intention to continue the technical exploration of the Commission proposals before trying to narrow the gaps between member states' positions. The aim is to ensure adoption of the MFF by the end of 2012.
