Abstract

In the murky waters of the multiple crisis that has hit the European Union, a natural question
arises: Which way forward? It is time to put the European economy back on a solid basis by relying on
massive investments in strategic areas. It is impossible to accurately estimate the impact on the
European economy of the various restrictions imposed by the authorities in the Member States in the
fight against pandemic COVID-19. In this article we analyse the European Economic Recovery Plan in
parallel with the EU draft budget for the programming period 2021-2027.
