The European recovery from the COVID-19 crisis will likely be a rocky road with many obstacles. To assist the recovery, policy makers in Europe put together unprecedented emergency packages - at the national, but also at the European level. Yet, many open questions about the road ahead remain: When are the programs considered successful? How to implement the European program against the resistance of some EU member states? How can a sustainable and lasting economic recovery be achieved efficiently? How should national programs be coordinated and implemented? What does the recovery imply for the future of the banking industry? This panel will discuss these and other questions on the policy options for a successful European recovery from different national angles.
