I warmly welcome the long-awaited adoption of the Multiannual Financial Framework 2021-27 and the Recovery Fund, with the rule of law as a conditionality. We urgently need this strong financial stimulus to counteract the economic crisis caused by COVID-19 and to shape the post-pandemic future of the EU.
In spite of the enormous challenges posed by the pandemic, European employers, workers and civil society organisations jointly urge all 27 Member States to deliver the EU's Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) and the EU's Resilience and Recovery fund.
Recovery from the current crisis, the impasse on long term EU budget and the future of the EU were the main topics of the discussion between the president of the EESC, Christa Schweng, and the president of the European Parliament, David Sassoli. The two presidents met virtually on 1 December for the first time in the current EESC term.
Long-term EU budget clinch, fighting the COVID-19 pandemic and the conference on the future of Europe – these were the main topics of the discussion between the presidents of the European Council and the European Economic and Social Committee. Christa Schweng and Charles Michel met via video conference on Friday, 27 November.
