Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 maggio 2020

Research and Energy Committee MEPs and the Commission Executive Vice-President for an Economy that Works for People, discussed the EU’s COVID-19 economic recovery plan, on Friday.“We all see that COVID-19 impacts not only our daily life routines, but the society as a whole, which has a direct impact on our economy. We have to find solutions for the affected industry sectors, and we have to ensure that the recovery plan has synergies with the industrial and SMEs strategy in order to overcome these challenges” said committee Chair Cristian Bușoi (EPP, RO) on Friday. “We need to work together to ensure that its effects are as short and limited as possible” he said.“Commission President von Der Leyen clearly stated in the plenary on Wednesday, that the next long-term EU budget will be topped up by a recovery instrument focusing on what are now our common priorities: the European Green Deal, digitalisation and resilience. Research will play a crucial role as it can have a great potential to be the driver for the recovery” he added.
Vice-President Valdis Dombrovskis listed the measures already taken at EU level to mitigate the impact of the crisis, and warned that all Member States will experience recession. The recovery will have to be inclusive and should not hamper the economic convergence process in the EU. He also highlighted that the magnitude of the economic shock is not necessarily linked to the number of COVID-19 cases in a specific Member State.Among other topics, MEPs raised the question of the complex steering of the recovery, how EU plans will fit in national strategies, the need to relocate strategic industries in the EU, the potential of building renovation projects to improve energy efficiency, and the EU’s carbon neutrality goals
