The governments in Sweden and Germany are united in their opposition of a higher EU bill for the union’s member countries. According to Finance Minister Magdalena Andersson, the bill cannot be raised just because the Brits are leaving the union.
Her meeting with German colleague Olaf Scholz in Berlin comes after Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel made positive comments on reforms for deepening Eurozone collaborations, including a new investment budget and transforming the ESM fund to a European currency fund with a broader mandate.
Ms Andersson comments, “This is nothing we would oppose in Sweden. There are good discussions and I think that it could benefit Euro cooperation – and therefore also Sweden.”
