Additional resources in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic: REACT-EU (debate)

  Monica Semedo (Renew). – Madam President, REACT—EU is the immediate response of the European Union to tackle the consequences of the Covid pandemic, which has hit our citizens and our economy hard. We have freed EUR 54 billion in record time in order to support SMEs through investments into jobs and growth. Almost a quarter of the fund is going to social measures, because we see how EU citizens struggle. Many have lost loved ones; many jobs are at risk; food banks have been used more than average, even in the wealthiest countries. And we don’t know how long this will take. REACT—EU will help citizens to have a more positive outlook and some reassurance, but governments must deploy this fund quickly and purposefully.

So, dear colleagues, let’s vote in favour of the proposal to help our citizens, because today, together, we will build the foundation of our future in Europe.
