The Netherlands may receive 757.4 million euros in European money to compensate for the damage resulting from Brexit.

Only Ireland can claim a higher amount, according to the proposal on which the EU Member States and the European Parliament are trying to agree.

The Brexit fund, with which the European Union wants to help the transport sector, fisheries and other victims of Brexit, can be used this year for 4.24 billion euros.

The member states discussed the distribution proposed by the European Commission for the first time on Wednesday.

However, not all countries are satisfied yet, and the European Parliament is also still considering it.

The Netherlands should therefore only give precedence to Ireland, which shares a land border with the United Kingdom and of all Member States has been most affected by the departure of the British.

Germany, France and Belgium follow after the Netherlands.

Next year, more than 1 billion euros will be released from the fund.
