The European Commission released its first strategic forecast report this Wednesday, aiming to identify trends and challenges and examine different scenarios to help the EU better withstand future crises and move forward on long-term Community policies.
This report will assist the Commission in developing future policies and legislation that will meet the needs and aspirations of European citizens, as indicated by the Community Executive.
In particular, Brussels proposes studies based on resilience parameters to be developed in collaboration with Member States and other key stakeholders to assess the weaknesses and resources of the EU and the 27. To this end, the report identifies weaknesses and opportunities in socio-economic, green, digital and geopolitical issues so that the Union can develop the Community agenda set by the Ursula von der Leyen Commission.
In the words of the German Conservative, in these “turbulent and complicated” times of pandemic, political leaders must have a broad and deep vision in order to make well-informed, courageous, and valuable decisions to promote a speedy recovery.
