Europe Press conference with Olaf Scholz after the virtual ECOFIN December meeting

Following the last regular virtual ECOFIN meeting under Germany’s Presidency of the Council of the EU on 1 December 2020, Olaf Scholz not only reported on the results of the video conference, but also looked back on the German Presidency as a whole: “The Council Presidency always has to carry the baton and do its utmost to ensure that it can represent the positions of all the member states. And I think we’ve managed that. We have got further than we ever thought we could. And in particular in this crisis, the German Presidency has managed to show that the European idea still lives: solidarity, freedom, rule of law. A substantial achievement, and something that we’ve achieved together.”
