Bulgaria is going to receive about 2.3 billion euros from the EU budget for 2019. This became clear after the European Parliament and the Council of the EU agreed on the Union's financial framework.

MEP Andrei Novakov told BNR that for Bulgaria this meant about a billion and a half Bulgarian levs going for infrastructure, 1.5 billion for agriculture and direct payments to farmers and almost 1 billion for poorer rural regions. The “Erasmus +” Student Program received an additional 240 million levs and the Horizon 2020 scientific program - 450 million. Additional funds for COSME - Europe's programme for small and medium-sized enterprises reach 5 million levs.
