The annual EU Court of Auditors report will be published on Wednesday, when the Court of Auditors President presents his findings to the Budgetary Control Committee. ECR Budgetary Control coordinator Ryszard Czarnecki has argued that the annual failure to secure a positive statement of assurance on the accounts undermines trust in the EU. The ECR has repeatedly called for a dedicated EU Budgetary Control Commissioner to focus on this challenge. EU Budgets Commissioner Georgieva will also participate in the Committee discussion.
