Zeman: Member states should decide where to put subsidies

The European Commission shouldn’t be telling member states specifically where to invest European subsidies, said President Zeman during his visit to the Olomouc region.

It’d be better for states to decide where to put the money, ultimately it would increase subsidies’ effectivity. We have to keep in mind that every country has different priorities and conditions, the amount of money for agricultural purposes or a science shouldn’t be decided centrally, added Zeman.

He mentioned that the European budget will be missing 15 percent of its income once the UK leave, because they have been a significant net payer. Therefore, Zeman believes it is really important to convince the Commission to let the states allocate European funds themselves. If not the Commission will continue with its much less efficient prescriptions.
