EES Economic Talks in Going (A), September 16-17, 2021

EES Economic Talks 2021 in Cooperation with the EES-Section Austria on the topic: "The Self-Assertion of Europe in a Globalized World"

Opening of the conference
View on the Partcipants


The Corona pandemic has ruthlessly exposed the strengths and weaknesses in Europe. Countries with functioning public administrations and stable budgets - like Germany - came through the crisis much better than countries with high budget deficits, little financial room for manoeuvre and non-functioning administrations. At the same time, the crisis has clearly shown the economic dependence on China. It is now important to find the way back to normality, to initiate a restart of economy and to make Europe more independent of third countries. Europe's competitiveness must be strengthened so that it does not "lose out" in the global competition with China and the USA. This requires impulses for growth, investment and employment. Europe has potential, we just have to use it better!
