iPhone : LEuropa🇪🇺 è stata forgiata dalle crisi. E questa ci dà lopportunità per un nuovo inizio.

Con #NextGenerationEU stiamo riscoprendo lo spirito dei padri fondatori. A beneficio delle generazioni future.

Il mio discorso agli studenti di Università Bocconi 🇮🇹


iPhone : Europe 🇪🇺 was forged in crises. And this one gives us the opportunity for a new start.

With #NextGenerationEU we are rediscovering the spirit of the founding fathers. For the benefit of future generations.

My address to the students of Università Bocconi 🇮🇹


iPhone : Today I discussed vaccines & vaccination with Sebastian Kurz
🇪🇺 has one of the broadest portfolios in the 🌍

Only safe & effective vaccines will be approved. Now we need to get ready for vaccination. It could start soon.
🇦🇹 is well on track. Well keep working closely together

iPhone : Today’s videoconference on coronavirus focused on:

🔸The epidemiological situation in Europe

🔸Vaccines: state of play of national vaccination strategies, marketing authorisation procedures, communication towards citizens

iPhone : The EU & Australia are natural partners.
I was happy to talk with Scott Morrison about deepening our relationship.
We took stock of our negotiations towards a 🇪🇺 🇦🇺 Free Trade Agreement.
We agreed to work together on vaccines, the global recovery & climate action.

iPhone : Violence against women is at alarming level.

With #COVID19, for some of us, not even home is a safe place.

Today, I say NO MORE.
#ViolenceAgainstWomen has to stop. In Europe, and abroad.

We owe it to all the victims.

iPhone : 🇱🇹 Good first phone call with Lithuanian Prime Minister Ingrida Šimonytė on our work on vaccines, and on Lithuania’s plans with regards to #NextGenerationEU and the budget.

Looking forward to a good cooperation.

iPhone : From Brexit to the fight against the pandemic,
From the budget to the fight against terrorists,

It is when we manage to join forces that we Europeans can achieve most.

iPhone : The #COVID19 crisis shows us how vital it is to strengthen our health systems & support innovation in Europe.

Today we present a new Pharmaceutical Strategy.

It will make sure we continue to benefit from safe, effective, high quality medicines, available at an affordable price. twitter.com/EU_Commission/…

iPhone : Europe supports workers and businesses during the crisis.

Our SURE instrument helps keep people in jobs.

We just issued social bonds for the 3rd time to finance short-time work schemes.

€8.5 billion will soon flow to EU countries - and more will come. #StrongerTogether

iPhone : Women’s rights are human rights.

We stand up against violence. We stand for their sexual & reproductive rights.

We want women & girls to be at the heart of peace processes.

Today we unveil a plan promoting gender equality around the 🌍 through the 🇪🇺external action. twitter.com/EU_Commission/…

iPhone : Europe stands in solidarity with the French 🇫🇷 and the Austrians 🇦🇹
Europe is united in the face of terrorist attacks in the heart of our cities.
And Europe is ready to act.

iPhone : We are waiting for the green light
on our next #EUBudget & #NextGenerationEU

We owe citizens a swift answer.

Those who had to temporarily close their restaurants & shops for the benefit of all of us.

Those whose livelihood is threatened. The people who fear for their jobs.

iPhone : 🇪🇺🇬🇧 Decisive days for our negotiations. There has been progress but I cannot tell today if in the end there will be a deal.

We prefer to have an agreement. But whatever the outcome, there will be a clear difference between being a full 🇪🇺member & being just a valued partner.

iPhone : Sveikinu Ingrida Šimonytė !
I wish you all the best in your tenure as Prime Minister of Lithuania 🇱🇹
I commend your efforts to form a gender-balanced government – I hope you will inspire many other leaders.
Looking forward to working with you.

iPhone : Today, we presented a new plan on integration and inclusion, to build diverse & cohesive societies that give everyone a fair chance.

Proper integration is a good investment for the individual & the community.  

It benefits us all. twitter.com/EU_Commission/…

iPhone : Today’s meeting of the Commissioners:

🔸Action Plan on Integration & Inclusion
🔸Promoting gender equality in 🇪🇺external action
