In the same period last year, the country was a net beneficiary of EU funding to the tune of CZK 24.4 bln. The increase mainly stems from the Czech Republic receiving higher amounts from EU funds, including advances on monies made available in response to the coronavirus crisis.

The Czech Republic has been a net beneficiary of EU funding since it became a member in 2004, Czech Radio notes.
