Who pays for the European Union?
2009 09 09

No one pays more to the EU than a citizen of Flanders, the Dutch-speaking northern half of Belgium. A Fleming pays twice as much as a Walloon, triple as much as a Briton and five times more than a Frenchman.

It was already known that, from the 27 EU-member states, 15 are net recipients and 12 are net contributors. Belgium is a large net contributor. The Vlaams Belang group in the European Parliament, led by Frank Vanhecke, has now calculated how much each citizen of Flanders and Wallonia pays each year. The result is surprising: with 1,780 million euro net, not a single EU-country pays more per head than Flanders: each Fleming pays 282 euro net per year.

This is more than the 272 euro each Dutchman pays per year. This is almost twice as much as a citizen of Wallonia, the French-speaking southern half of Belgium pays (164 euro). It is also double the amount of a German’s contribution (114 euro) and almost triple as much as that of a Briton. It is even five times more than the 53 euro a Frenchman pays and the 49 euro an Italian contributes.

The 2007 ‘hit parade’ of the largest EU-contributors looks like this:

1. Flanders: 1,780 million euro divided by 6.3 million inhabitants = 282.6 euro/Fleming

2. The Netherlands: 4,464.1 million euro divided by 16.4 million inhabitants = 272 euro/Dutchman

3. Luxemburg: 117 million euro divided by 476.187 million inhabitants = 245.7 euro/Luxemburger

4. Wallonia: 690.5 million euro divided by 4.2 million inhabitants = 164.5 euro/Walloon

5. Denmark: 817.4 million euro divided by 5.4 million inhabitants = 151.3 euro/Dane

6. Sweden: 1,280.2 million euro divided by 9.1 million inhabitants = 140.6 euro/Swede

7. Germany: 9,393.6 million euro divided by 82.3 million inhabitants = 114.1 euro/German

8. Great Britain: 6,156.6 million euro divided by 60.8 million inhabitants = 101.2 euro/Briton

9. Austria: 639.7 million euro divided by 8.2 million inhabitants = 78 euro/Austrian

10. Cyprus: 49.2 million euro divided by 778.684 inhabitants = 62 euro/Cypriot

11. France: 3362.3 million euro divided by 63.3 million inhabitants = 53.1 euro/Frenchman

12. Italy: 2,938.3 million euro divided by 59.1 million inhabitants = 49.7 euro/Italian

13. Finland: 229.1 million euro divided by 5.2 million inhabitants = 44 euro/Finn
