Webinar: Business and finance – Priorities of the German Council Presidency
The German Council Presidency has started in challenging times. The Covid 19 pandemic has hit the economies in the EU Member States very hard and the recovery phase has just started. EU leaders will meet physically in Brussels on 17 and 18 July 2020 at a Special European Council to discuss the recovery plan to respond to the COVID-19 crisis and a new long-term EU budget. Chancellor Merkel has stressed that she wants to use the crisis to push for an even closer Union – also tackling issues like climate change and digitalization.
On Financial services the German Presidency will deal with the negotiations on the Banking Union and ways to deepen the single market for banks. The European Commission`s High Level Forum on Capital Markets Union has just published its report with a number of recommendations to be discusses further. And there might be a Quick fix on financial market regulation as MiFID coming up.
