The 2010 budget of the European Union was approved by conciliation delegations from Parliament and the Council. Three issues were solved – the funding for the EU economic recovery plan, funding for the closure of the Bulgarian nuclear plant Kozloduy and emergency aid to milk producers.
The EU economic recovery plan will cost €2.4 billion next year. €75 million will go for support for the closure of the Bulgarian nuclear plant Kozloduy. €300 million will be used as emergency measures for milk producers.
