27/05/2020 PES Presidency Declaration on European Commission's Recovery Plan announcement
The COVID19 strongly impacted the lives of every single European. In addition to hundreds of thousands of lives claimed by the pandemic, the European economy was severely damaged by the restrictions imposed in the fight against the virus. Since the beginning of the crisis, the PES has advocated for a strong recovery plan, with strong financial instruments to protect citizens and get the EU back on its feet. In this context, the PES Presidency welcomes the European Commission Next Generation EU plan of €750 billion to address and tackle the crisis. This is a historic moment and we believe that this plan must strengthen our social model as well as the green and digital transitions and must be based on our common European values
