The Covid-19 global pandemic had severely affected the societies, economies and healthcare systems around the World and there is no end in sight for the virus. The most important thing now is to share know-how and good practices between the countries and help each other during this hardship. This online debate will concentrate on the economic recovery strategies of the V4 countries.
The speakers will introduce how do the National Recovery and Resilience Plans in each country respond to the problems caused by the epidemic and how do they relate to the crisis management measures introduced by the governments.
