Talks will begin today, May 27, on the European Union’s (EU) seven-year budget and plans to fund the economic recovery following the coronavirus pandemic. France and Germany proposed a €500 billion European Union Recovery Fund, to be financed by debt issuance by the European Commission on behalf of the Union. Do the current multi-annual EU budget be achieved? What are the pros and cons to bear in mind looking at the EU final budget agreement? Which place could we expect for Europe in the geopolitical sphere post crisis?

Enrico Letta, former Italian Prime Minister (from 2013 to 2014), is the keynote guest of this new episode of the Blue Conversation series, interviewed by Monica Defend, Global Head of Research.
