The economic and social effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the hardships and challenges caused by the unjustified Russian aggression in Ukraine highlighted the importance of developing a more resilient, sustainable and inclusive EU economy. The ongoing revision of the European economic governance framework is a key element in achieving this. On 26 April 2023, the European Commission presented its long-awaited reform proposals on the EU's economic governance rules and the EESC takes this opportunity to draw up a new opinion, presenting its views and recommendations on the proposed changes.
In the context of the work on this opinion, the ECO section decided to organise a public hearing bringing together experts from organised civil society, academia as well as decision-makers to discuss the Commission's proposals on the review of the economic governance framework and the challenges and opportunities associated with it practical implementation. The EESC intends to use the conclusions of the event to feed into the EESC opinion.
The event will be webstreamed (original, EN, FR). No registration is needed and participation is free of charge.
