The European budget is modest: it represents about 155 billions of euros per year, which is less than the annual national budget of several Member States (the one in Belgium for instance was about 155 billions of euros in 2016).

This means that each Member States participate at a level of 1% of its GDP. It is also estimated that every European citizen contributes to about 85 cents of euros every day to the EU budget.
