    International trade has made a significant contribution to the expansion of the global economy and has been a vital instrument for inclusive economic growth and sustainable development. But the multilateral trading system was already facing acute challenges before COVID-19, and the pandemic has wreaked havoc on trade and supply chains, erasing years of economic gains in some cases.

    The silver lining is the renewed political impetus for both, global economic governance and international economic cooperation, that comes with new US political leadership. How can this momentum be seized to restore and rebrand the WTO and its decision-making body for a strong, transparent, and fair multilateral trading system and enhance trust among Members?

  • The EU Economic Reboot: On Track Towards Resilient Economies?

    Will the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) suffice as the main vehicle for a post-COVID19 recovery, and what are some other instruments key to recovery? What are the cornerstones of national strategies for post-COVID19 recoveries? History has shown that successful recovery spending – at the EU level and at home – is a high-stake challenge: how can the implementation bottlenecks be overcome to place the region of Central Europe on the trajectory towards sustainable, green and intelligent growth?

    The policy response to the pandemic has been hotly debated among EU capitals since spring 2020. A shared solution materialized a rescue package five times larger than the Marshall Plan, with the aim of providing relief and increasing EU economies’ resilience. EU capitals have been hard-pressed to submit detailed recovery plans with implementation milestones to Brussels to access their fund allocations and begin rebuilding. The hope has been that by pushing through unpalatable reforms together with sizeable funds underwritten by 27 member states, that the EU economy can be jumpstarted. Twelve months fast-forward, the jury is out to openly evaluate progress made towards the coveted resilient EU.
