The Danish Presidency has chosen to accelerate and to prioritize the 2014-2020 budget negotiations of which a numerical synthesis must be presented in June. 

However, negotiations are difficult to proceed.
The last meeting of European Affairs Ministers on March 26, has clearly established the positions of member states, nevertheless negotiations about financial allocations are endless. In issue, the French presidential election which would slow the decision making process in Brussels, economic difficulties of member States which persist, and the question of the future of EU resources.
The adoption of the possible Tax on financial transactions, which would reduce by half the states' contributions to EU budget, would open up better prospects for the 2014-2020 budget.
Meanwhile its possible adoption, negotiations continue and have been particularly slow to identify concretes priorities. Nevertheless, the Commission and the European Parliament, who both want that the budget is at least equivalent to the 2007-2013, will continue to put pressure to ensure that the EU budget will meet their ambitions. Several parliamentarians have already said they will refuse to vote the EU budget if it was not satisfying. If the Danish Presidency is unable to finalize the negotiations, it will be the Cypriot presidency who lead the discussion to an end.
