Τhe 13th Newsletter is out and in this latest issue you can read:
- Italy and Spain would be the largest beneficiaries of grants in terms of absolute sums, while Bulgaria, Greece and Croatia would receive the highest shares of their GNIs, around 15%, based on the Commission’s proposal.
- The lockdown increases poverty in all European countries. Assuming the absence of counteracting government measures, the percentage of poor people in Europe may substantially increase, even if lockdown does not last long.
- This week, the ECJ decreed that the legislation of Hungary’s government under Orban, obliging foreign-funded NGOs to report all the grants they receive from abroad, violates EU law.
- Bulgaria, Romania as well as Greece have been seen as reluctant to embrace the transition to the European Green Deal because it is both technically challenging and politically sensitive.
