@EU_Commission Vice-President for the € and Social Dialogue, Financial Services & Markets.
What Europe needs to recover is renewed growth & jobs. We can achieve that with long-term investments in growth areas like green and digital; and with reforms to remove barriers and bottlenecks and put Europe on a sustainable path. My speech to @KASonline :
At 5th Trade Policy Day I outlined how the @EU_Commission 's ongoing #EUTradeReview process will help to establish the direction of our #EUTrade policy to support the economic recovery from #COVID19 and to facilitate green and digital transitions 👉🏻

🇪🇺 Good, productive discussion on EU-Brazil trade relations with Brazilian Foreign Minister@ernestofaraujo . We committed to working further on addressing concerns surrounding the EU #Mercosur Trade Agreement.
We made history: co-legislators reached a deal on an #EU taxonomy for #green economic activities. Still subject to formal endorsement by @Europarl_EN & EU countries, this is the much-needed enabler to get green investments to flow and help Europe reach climate neutrality by 2050.
We’ve adopted a temporary equivalence decision for UK clearing houses (CCPs).This will ✅ ensure financial stability ✅ give market participants 18 months to reduce their excessive exposures to UK CCPs ✅ allow EU CCPs to build up their clearing capability
I am honoured & grateful to take on the #EUTrade portfolio at @EU_Commission . My sincere thanks to @Europarl_EN MEPs for putting your trust in me & my new colleague @MaireadMcGMEP . I look forward to working closely with you to drive forward the #EU ’s trade agenda.
? We have reached a compromise on the ‘green list’ - or taxonomy - for green economic activities. A major success ahead of #COP25 and for our Sustainable Finance Strategy. My thanks to @EU2019FI , @EP_Economics and @EP_Environment . #ClimateAction
#Greece remains part of the eurozone. #Eurogroup decisive to ensure the financial stability and to further strengthen the eurozone.
