From our partners in ENSIE
In these difficult times, when lot of political speeches are often made in vague terms about the future, ENSIE can only agree with Ursula von der Leyen’s speech where she puts solidarity at the heart of the political answers to the crisis. We do not hear such words so frequently at EU level. ENSIE and its European partners now need to ensure that they will be translated into concrete actions.
“In this Coronavirus Crisis, only the strongest of responses will do. We must use every means at our disposal. Every available euro in the EU budget will be redirected to address it, every rule will be eased to enable the funding to flow rapidly and effectively. With a new solidarity instrument, we will mobilise €100 billion to keep people in jobs and businesses running. With this, we are joining forces with Member States to save lives and protect livelihoods. This is European solidarity.” Ursula von der Leyen
ENSIE would like to underline the measures taken by the European Commission in the last few days and weeks to propose solutions and to attenuate the Coronavirus Crisis in Europe.
