He continued: “The second priority is to continue with the digital and green transformation. Third, we want to develop a strong and healthy union. We also want to focus specifically on the younger generation and our children. Here Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps are perhaps the two most visible examples, but ultimately most of our programmes, directly or indirectly, also focus on young people.”

Unforeseen developments require additional money
