A major innovation in EU finances to counter the socio-economic impact of the pandemic, the Next Generation EU (NGEU) recovery instrument enters its full deployment phase in 2022. On this occasion, the European Parliamentary Research Service (EPRS) has launched a new series of briefings – ‘Next Generation EU (NGEU) delivery: How are the Member States doing?’.
The EU is currently projected to use €504 billion out of the maximum allocation available (€723.8 billion) under the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF), the centrepiece of NGEU. But how is this significant amount of resources going to be used to meet the key objectives of the green transition, the digital transformation, resilience and inclusion?
The publications in the series look at the national recovery and resilience plans (NRRPs) put forward by the Member States to benefit from investment under the RRF. Each briefing sets out the funding each Member State can access, the country-specific challenges that the plan is designed to address, the investment and reform measures put forward by national authorities, and the Commission’s assessment of their plans. Other sections present the milestones and targets to be met and the latest state of play in the implementation, as well as a flavour of the debate individual plans have triggered. Various graphics recapitulate key data in a snapshot. In a nutshell, the briefings aim to provide the essentials of each national plan in an easily accessible format.
The series will cover all Member States and the briefings will be updated regularly, at key stages throughout the lifecycle of the plans. The first briefings in the series are devoted to: Belgium; Cyprus; Czechia; Denmark; Estonia; Finland; France; Germany; Greece; Ireland; Italy; Latvia; Lithuania Malta; and Spain.
