Sectoral programs are adopted as part of the regular legislative process. For example, the Agriculture and Fisheries Council is working on legislative proposals for the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), the Competitiveness Council on internal market, research and space programmes. The General Affairs Council is responsible for the work on the MFF package and is preparing the so-called “negotiation package”. The MFF regulation is adopted as part of a specific legislative procedure: the decision-making process behind the multi-year financial framework. The Sector Council formations are responsible for working on EU funding programmes in the Council. The European Council and the Council of the EU play a central role in the development of the EU`s long-term budget, which generally covers a period of five to seven years. Negotiations will begin a few years before the opening of the new budget period. The formal process begins with the European Commission`s presentation of the “Multi-Year Financial Package” (MFF). In particular, the package contains that the draft negotiating box contains the elements that are most likely to serve EU heads of state and government political direction and priority.

The aim is to facilitate the development of draft conclusions of the European Council on the MFF presented by the President of the European Council.
