In the sixteenth episode of the podcast series “The Athens Brussels Review”, George Pagoulatos, Maria Demertzi and Thodoris Georgakopoulos talk to Yannis Papageorgiou about why the EU needs to formulate an urgent response to US and Chinese protectionism, whether the US decarbonization legislation carries with it the threat of deindustrialization in Europe, and whether an effective and feasible plan can be drawn up which supports EU green, industrial and technological competitiveness while also protecting European cohesion and the single market.
