The next months will be crucial for the Think20 think tank community to produce policy recommendations in view of the Italian G20 Summit in October. This series of T20-associated events (closed-door and public Roundtables) is intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the T20 by adding new voices of international experts, civil servants, and representatives of the business community. ISPI, the T20 National Coordinator and Chair, and the Bruegel are co-promoting the T20 Associated-event “After COVID-19: a Most Wanted Recovery”, in cooperation with the Centre for European Reform and Elcano Royal Institute. This Public Event is preceded by a closed-door Workshop by invitation only (see the programme), intended as an occasion to broaden participation in the Task Force (TF) “International Finance”.
COVID-19 has forced the EU to introduce extraordinary measures as coping mechanisms to tackle the economic crisis. A careful exit strategy from these unprecedented measures is needed. If measures are ended too soon, the much-needed post-Covid recovery would be at risk. If ended too late, long-term growth and financial stability might be endangered, especially in a context of skyrocketing public debt across the EU. How to strike the right balance? What are the key ingredients and timing of a careful exit strategy? How to embrace the European priorities of green and digital transitions in this process?
The programme of the event can be found here.

Ispi has always been careful to ensure an inclusive working environment and to be attentive to gender diversity and to the plurality of voices represented in its initiatives. When this is not reflected in one of our publications or events, it is due to the unavailability of the consulted experts to participate or to challenges in identifying specific profiles in our network.
