Europe Doorstep by Olaf Scholz prior to the virtual Eurogroup meeting

Prior to the Eurogroup meeting on 30 November 2020, German Finance Minister Olaf Scholz reported on the agenda of the virtual meeting of euro area finance ministers. The topics included the further development of the European Stability Mechanism (ESM) and an exchange of views on the implementation of the EU recovery plan to deal with the coronavirus crisis: “We all agree that it is important for us, as the European Union, to show our strength in two ways. First in terms of our economic response to the consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic and ensuring that the member states are in a position to protect the health of their citizens. And second in terms of remaining united in what connects us, which is our shared support for the concept of the rule of law.”
