Finance Minister Christian Lindner wants the EU to return to strict budget rules after the huge debt admission in the Corona crisis. A more reliable and more ambitious path to reduce debt is necessary, the FDP politician told the “Handelsblatt”. According to the “Handelsblatt”, the debt rules should also be retained in accordance with the German proposal for the reform of the EU stability and growth pact. These allow Member States to announce a maximum of three percent of economic output and a total debt of a maximum of 60 percent.

In addition, Lindner wants to prescribe debt reduction. So far, the principle that the member states may only have an annual structural deficit of 0.5 percent or have to approach this is not binding. Lindner wants to change that: the medium -term household goals should become binding. A gradual adjustment to a largely balanced budget would also be accepted, he said.

The EU Commission wants to submit its proposal for the stability pact reform in autumn. Various camps have formed among the members. Germany had always rejected far -reaching reforms and a softening of the debt rules that other countries are calling for.
