Recommendations to the French Presidency

14 Jan 2022
All Committees

On January 2022, France took over the rotating Presidency of the Council of the European Union. Despite impressive efforts to get vaccines into the arms of the majority of citizens, Europe now finds itself in the midst of a fresh wave, which is further complicated by the emergence of the new Omicron variant of the virus. As Member States begin to obtain disbursements of the historic NextGenerationEU recovery instrument, the French Presidency is taking on a critical task in overseeing the substantive rebuild of Europe’s economy around the twin transitions of environmental protection and digitalisation. Our recommendations to the French Presidency aim to ensure we reach our common goals of a more prosperous and more competitive EU.

 AmCham EU looks forward to working closely with France during its Presidency to ensure we reach our shared objectives of a strong, green and digital economic recovery.
