Norwegians pay the highest EU fee

According to numbers from the European Union commission, Norway gives three times more money per inhabitant to EU’s new member countries than the member countries themselves.

The ten new EU members will as of this year receive EUR 205.8 million annually in subsidies from Norway during the next five years.

Sweden is transferring between EUR 64 and 84 million annually, while Denmark gives between EUR 19 and 25 million, and Finland about EUR 1.5 million annually during the next five years, according to the paper Nationen.

The numbers are based on calculations made on data presented by the EU commission’s budget directorate.

Divided per inhabitants, every Norwegian pays EUR 137.2 over a period of three years. The most densely populated country in the Union, Germany, will in the same period give EUR 18.60 per inhabitant.
