Each Member State must submit its recovery plan in order to access funding from the EU”s Next Generation EU Recovery Fund. The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise has chosen to divide its proposals for what should be included in the Swedish Recovery Fund into three parts.
According to the European Council”s decision at the July summit, each Member State must submit its recovery plan in order to access funding from the EU”s Next Generation EU Recovery Fund. The plan should be consistent with the country-specific recommendations of the European Semester and should contribute to green and digital transformations. The plan should also ”promote growth and employment”.
The national recovery plans shall be approved by the Council, following analysis by the Commission as to whether the relevant milestones and objectives have been met satisfactorily. As part of this work, the Economic and Financial Committee will also be consulted. However, there is no further concrete information about the goals or how these will be weighted in the decision.
The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise has chosen to divide its proposals for what should be included in the Swedish Recovery Fund into three parts. The first examines the countryspecific recommendations, to see which areas are most suitable for using EU funds from the Recovery Fund. The second highlights those proposals that we previously presented in our plan to ‘Restart Sweden that can be linked to the country-specific recommendations. The third is linked to the guidelines set out by the EU Council in July of this year.
The Council placed its emphasis and overall focus on efforts connected with the recovery. This is fully in line with the input made by the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise in spring 2020, where we demanded, at an early stage, that the EU recovery must be both digital and green.
