An Economy that Works for the People: Beyond Brexit and Covid-19
12-04-2021 09:00 - 16:00 (GMT+0) Dublin
The after-effects of the euro-crisis continue to cast a shadow over the future of Europe. The political guidelines for the European Commission (2019-2024) include a commitment to An Economy That Works for People. At the heart of this commitment is a pledge to undertake the necessary institutional reforms to bring about the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union. There is also a commitment to other basic principles – gender equality, support for SMEs, tax fairness, and strengthening of the social pillar. This conference will cast a critical eye on these guidelines with a view to exploring their appropriateness and their feasibility.
The event will feature as a keynote speaker Mr. Paolo Gentiloni, European Commissioner in charge of Economic Affairs, and will take stock of the major development which Next Generation EU, the post-pandemic recovery fund, represents for the future of the European Union.
