Despite a rocky start, the vaccine rollout is now accelerating and Europe can look forward to a progressive return to normalcy in the coming months. With consumer optimism on the rise and firms investing in the re-opening, the stage is set for a sharp acceleration of economic activity in the second half of 2021. The stronger than expected global recovery and a spur of public investment in green and digital technologies should sustain the recovery over the medium term, while a commitment to long-delayed structural reforms could potentially lift productivity after a period of stagnant growth.
Join us for a webinar with Mr. Kristian Orsini and Mr. Ben Carliner to discuss the European Commission’s latest economic forecast and learn how Europe is turning the page on the pandemic and reshaping its economic governance to be better prepared for the challenges of the 21st century.
