The German EU Presidency — motor or maintainer?

Deepen your expertise with POLITICO insiders

Half Day Workshop

In light of the current situation, we have made all our workshops accessible virtually at a discounted rate. For those who wish to attend the workshop in person, we wish to inform you that we take the health and safety of our guests very seriously and are closely monitoring the guidance of the World Health Organization and local authorities to make sure we are compliant and can provide a safe environment for all participants.

Everyone was waiting for the Germany presidency to deal with the long to-do-list of the EU. The coronavirus pandemic made the plans pivot to crisis management. This POLITICO PRO Intelligence Workshops analyzes the German work program, what has been delivered, which European power centers and country tribes managed to could claim victory in battles around the long-term budget, the economic recovery plan or the EU Green deal debate and what to expect next. Where is the EU heading after the crisis and after one of its powerful members headed the European Council for six months? Take stock and join the debate about the political outlook with POLITICO experts and industry peers.
