    The EU’s new budget must be smaller than the current one and Sweden’s contribution must be kept down. Money should go to common areas such as migration and security rather than to agricultural aid, and payments to Member States must be subject to the condition that joint decisions in the area of migration are followed. This is the Government’s position ahead of the upcoming EU budget negotiations that was presented by Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and Minister for Finance Magdalena Andersson today.
