Year-End Economic Update from Europe & Outlook on Transatlantic Trade
Organised by EU Delegation to the United States
Join us for an update on the EU economic situation and outlook. As Europe struggles with the much feared second wave of the pandemic, we will discuss the state of play of the EU recovery package and the way forward.
In addition to the current economic situation and outlook, panelists will discuss EU policies to counter the economic fallout of the pandemic and the future of the transatlantic trade and investment relationship in the aftermath of the Presidential election. Hear how the EU and the US could overcome the existing trade tensions and manage longstanding trade disputes, while considering greater cooperation on global economic challenges. Panelists will update US investors on challenges and opportunities as both the EU and US continue to recover from the COVID shock to the global economy.
