This has been a busy week as the @EU_Commission presented an unprecedented economic stimulus to confront what is the worst recession in the EU's history. Big shoutout to @europressos who has done an amazing job in bringing you all the details. A few reads for the weekend here 👇
Here's an overview of the three pillars €750 billion stimulus package, including an updated EU long-term budget and a newly designed recovery instrument.

An important part of the plan is to support the private sector by stimulating investment in key areas and supporting viable firms in troubles as a result of the #COVID19 crisis.

Another key element of the Commission's proposal is to reinforce #cohesionpolicy, meant to fight inequalities across the bloc, taking into consideration the uneven impact of the #coronavirus outbreak. This, I explained it:

And actually, part of that cohesion package is the #JustTransitionFund which has been reinforced with the goal of ensuring a green recovery in mind. The one and only @SamJamesMorgan crunched the numbers.

But how is the EU going to pay for all this? The Commission wants to see an increase in own resources and has tabled a number of proposals including a new push for the long-time awaited digital tax. @SamuelStolton brought you the details.

Now, for this ambitious plan to actually happen, an agreement at the Council and the consent of the Parliament are needed. @EURACTIV’s network collected all the reactions from the EU member states.

Aaaand as a bonus track -and the cherry on top, this #mustread interview with Commissioner @ThierryBreton: ”This is probably one of the most important moments for the construction of Europe."

By @europressos, bien sûr.
