Finland’s net payments to EU down in 2017
Finland paid 50 euros per inhabitant to the EU in 2017, making a total of 275 million euros — some 19 million euros less than the previous year.
Finland paid in 275 million euros more to the EU than it got back in funding in 2017, representing a 19-million-euro drop in its net EU contribution from the previous year, according to European Commission statistics.
The 2017 figure works out to 50 euros per inhabitant, down from 54 euros per inhabitant in 2016, when its payment was 294 million euros – almost twice as much as the 570 million euros it paid in 2015.
