Se vorbeste despre planul de salvare a economiei europene ca despre un nou plan Marshall. Pentru cei care stiu istorie si geopolitica nu exista nicio comparatie. Planul Marshall, ajutorul oferit de SUA Europei dupa razboi pentru a isi reveni economic, a fost cimentul legaturii trans-Atlantice, intarite apoi de formarea NATO. Actualul plan discutat de leaderii europeni, /salutar si necesar, este al nostru pentru noi si acest lucru nu face decit sa reflecte o stare de fapt – o legatura trans-Atlantica slabita – si o tendinta – izolarea SUA. Nu este niciun plan Marshall in acest razboi, fiecare se descurca singur.
Michel: EU leaders to consider ‘Marshall Plan’ for Europe
Next long-term budget will need to support economic stimulus package, says Council president.
EU leaders will on Thursday discuss a “Marshall Plan-like” stimulus package to fight the dire effects of the coronavirus on the bloc’s economies, European Council President Charles Michel said Wednesday.
Speaking on Belgian television channel LN24, Michel said he had earlier this week discussed “the way we are going to put in place what I call a Marshall Plan-like stimulus strategy” with the bloc’s 27 ambassadors, ahead of Thursday’s videoconference of heads of state and government.
“And when I say Marshall Plan-like, I say with a strong ambition,” he added. The impact of the economic shock on businesses means “we must be very active, very soon.”
Michel described the endeavor as “an intra-European plan which must mobilize EU capital in the framework of the European budget; which must mobilize national funds and which should also mobilize the private sector,” adding: “We will have to use all the tools.”
Leaders on Thursday are expected to call on the European Commission to put together a new plan for economic recovery.
