MEP Damian Boeselager and Policy Fellow Nils Redeker talk about the implementation of the Recovery Instrument and what power the EU Commission has for the first time due to the instrument.
The Corona Recovery Fund is historic because it involves a lot of European money - namely 750 billion euros. One and a half years after the member states agreed on this gigantic economic stimulus package, Thu Nguyen talks to MEP Damian Boeselager and Policy Fellow Nils Redeker about the implementation of the recovery instrument and the distribution of the money. Is Brussels now suddenly powerful because it has a new lever of power and can dictate what countries do with the money? The two guests discuss what the member states invest in, what reforms they commit to and what conditions are attached to the European money.
