‘We have to make the EU recovery quicker and bigger’: France’s Europe minister

Talking #Europe speaks to Clément Beaune, a close confidant of French President Emmanuel Macron. The French Secretary of State for European Affairs says the EU-wide recovery plan agreed last year should be implemented faster and he does not rule out that more stimulus might be needed. Beaune also takes stock of the EU vaccine rollout, digital certificates for travel this summer and the meaning of Europe Day on May 9, some 71 years after the Schuman Declaration began the process of European integration.
