EPC Weekly Update – Franco-German proposal for €500bn 'recovery fund'; Single Market; industrial policy
At this Weekly Update, EPC Director of Studies Janis A. Emmanouilidis and EPC Chief Executive Fabian Zuleeg, analysed the latest developments at EU and member state level, including on COVID-19 and Europe's response to the ongoing crisis. In this context, they discussed the Franco-German proposal for a €500bn 'recovery fund'. For this, they were joined by Marta Pilati, Policy Analyst at the EPC.
The main focus of this week's Update was on the future of industrial policy and the Single Market in the context of the COVID-19 crisis. EPC Policy Analyst Johan Bjerkem joined this part of the event where the discussion concentrated on a number of core questions: Will we witness a substantial roll-back of globalisation? Do we need to rethink the EU's industrial strategy in a post-COVID19 world? Will national state interventions undermine the level playing field between member states in the Single Market? How quickly can it be reinstated and what role should the Single Market play in ensuring Europe's economic recovery?
