President Dalia Grybauskaitė met with Klaus-Heiner Lehne, President of the European Court of Auditors to discuss the reform of the Court of Auditors, auditors’ insights and proposals on the new EU multiannual framework as well as Lithuania’s priorities. The President emphasized that insights and proposals made by the European Court of Auditors on the new multiannual financial framework were acceptable in principle and opinions of most member states coincided, but Lithuania still had its own funding priorities. The President reminded that funding assigned to Lithuania in the new multiannual financial framework was not fair, since it suggested drastic cuts in cohesion funding and direct payments to farmers were still way behind the EU average, therefore Lithuania asked for a transitional period and gradual cuts in the EU support.
