As the economic effects of the pandemic spread across Europe, Europe needs to support its economy so we can guarantee stability and foster growth. As the COVID-19 pandemic puts the European Union’s strength to the test, its institutions are taking measures to cushion the economy from the impact of the crisis.

To discuss what the EU is doing to support Member States and citizens, European Movement International, in partnership with the EIB, is holding the next Investing in the Future of Europe event entitled The EU’s plan for recovery and long-term resilience,

After events held across Europe since 2017, this discussion will be held online next Wednesday, 1 July 2020 (15:30-16:30). 

The panel will feature :

  • Thomas Östros, Vice President  | European Investment Bank
  • Valérie Hayer MEP, member of the EP’s negotiating team for the next long-term EU budget and Own Resources reform | European Parliament
  • Luc Tholoniat, Principal Adviser | Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs, European Commission

Moderated by BBC journalist and presenter, Joe Lynam

After the initial discussion, online participants will have the opportunity to engage in a Q&A session. 

Watch the event on the dedicated website HERE.

The event will be live-streamed from the European Movement International Facebook, Twitter account and YouTube page.

Since 2017, this series of panel discussions has been held across the EU as well as in other neighbouring countries. Designed to discuss the benefits of EU integration and membership, this is also an opportunity to engage broader civil society to debate about the transformative power and direct benefits of the EU.
