Sandra Parthie Event 10. November 2021 EU’s Economy after Corona: How can recovery and structural change succeed?

With „NextGenerationEU”, the EU provides comprehensive grants and loans for public investments and reforms in its Member States. At least 37% of the overall amount should be spend on forward-looking investments and structural reforms in favour of climate protection, while 20% shall go towards the digital transformation. The Member States have submitted their national recovery plans, and the first funds have been disbursed. It is the biggest EU economic stimulus package ever. The challenge now lies in the execution.

With „NextGenerationEU”, the EU provides comprehensive grants and loans for public investments and reforms in its Member States. At least 37% of the overall amount should be spend on forward-looking investments and structural reforms in favour of climate protection, while 20% shall go towards the digital transformation. The Member States have submitted their national recovery plans, and the first funds have been disbursed. It is the biggest EU economic stimulus package ever. The challenge now lies in the execution.

What is the status quo of national recovery plans and their implementation? How to ensure that necessary structural reforms are implemented and real European value added? And who is monitoring the developments? Do the national administrations have the absorption capacities in place?

The German Economic Institute (IW) and the Brussels Office of the Hanns Seidel Foundation cordially invite you to discuss these and other questions about European post-Corona economy with our distinguished panellists. The event will take place via Zoom from 3.30 pm-4.30 pm.
