“Will Europe be able to rebuild its economy after the coronavirus crisis?,” asked the journalist Jessica Sturmberg, who moderated the event. According to Heinemann, Europe is currently facing a double challenge: the task of stabilising the economy in the short term, and the challenge of making long-term economic and financial policy decisions. Europe finds itself in a crisis situation with unforeseeable consequences, said Goulard. “These are emergency measures to secure the functioning of the system,” stressed the deputy governor of the Banque de France. Heinemann confirmed that there are first signs of short-term economic stability in Europe. Both experts agreed that the aid programmes are an extraordinary achievement of the 27 EU Member States.
