Navigating the Recovery: How Europe is Coming out Stronger from the Pandemic
September 9, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
This virtual event is organized by the European American Chamber of Commerce and the Delegation of the European Union to the United States. For the most updated information and to RSVP, visit their event page.
The road to recovery remains beset with challenges, but Europe will come out stronger from the pandemic recession.
The long shutdown was a high, but necessary price to pay to slow down the progression of the pandemic. Despite recent signs of resurgence, Europe overall has been fairly successful in flattening the curve of contagions. The unprecedented output contraction has left many EU economies struggling with high fiscal needs and the perspective of sluggish growth. To facilitate a more even recovery, EU leaders have agreed on an unprecedented EU-level policy response, which despite its temporary nature may carry the seed of a stronger fiscal union.
Join top EU economists in Washington, D.C. as they discuss the outlook for the European economy, the key measures taken by the European Union, and some of the risks facing the economic recovery. The presentation will include a detailed look at the European Commission’s Summer Economic Forecast, discuss the details of the historic agreement Recovery Plan and other policy measures put forward by the European Commission and the European Central Bank.
The program will offer an opportunity for Q&A.
