Lusa - Business News - Portugal: Merkel-Macron plan important step towards fiscal union - Centeno




Berlin, May 24, 2020 (Lusa) - Eurogroup President Mario Centeno said the plan by French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to reactivate the economy was an important step towards fiscal union and an effective monetary union.

"The Franco-German proposal would be a major step towards a fiscal union and a monetary union that really works, even if the reconstruction fund plan [following the crisis generated by the Covid-19 pandemic] is limited in time," Centeno said in an interview with the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

Nevertheless, Centeno warned that negotiations at the European Council "will not be easy".

Merkel and Macron proposed the creation of a €500 billion fund to support the economic reconstruction of the countries most affected by the pandemic.

The fund would be financed through debt securities issued by the European Commission and guaranteed by EU member countries, according to the percentage weight of their economies in the European gross domestic product (GDP), with beneficiary countries receiving non-reimbursable aid from the fund.

"Merkel and Macron's proposal is good news for Europe. The plan is a considerable step in the right direction to overcome this crisis," said Centeno.

The president of the Eurogroup said it would be desirable to reach an agreement before the summer on the key elements of a European economic programme and the guidelines for the reconstruction fund.

The Franco-German proposal, however, faces opposition from Austria, Denmark, the Netherlands and Sweden, which have formulated an alternative plan that provides for low-interest loans but does not include subsidies.

Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz said the fund must be limited to two years so that it effectively consists of immediate aid against the crisis generated by the coronavirus and does not become an instrument of long-term debt pooling.

Speaking to Passauer Presse, the leader of the European People's Party (EPP) parliamentary group in the European Parliament (EP), Manfred Weber, was optimistic that an agreement could be reached.

According to Weber, Sebastian Kurz does not question the substance, but just some aspects of how it works, and there are still outstanding issues whose solution requires "a great deal of diplomatic skill and the ability to compromise".

Worldwide, according to an assessment by the AFP news agency, the Covid-19 pandemic has claimed more than 342,000 lives and infected more than 5.3 million people in 196 countries and territories.

After Europe succeeded China as the centre of the pandemic in February, the American continent has the most confirmed cases (more than 2.4 million, compared to two million in Europe), although with fewer deaths (more than 142,000, compared to more than 173,000).

To fight the pandemic, governments sent 4.5 billion people home (more than half the planet's population), paralyzing entire sectors of the world economy, in a "great confinement" that several countries have already begun to alleviate in the face of the decrease in new contagions.
