Who will benefit from EU Covid Recovery Fund? REPORT

July 24, 2020

EU leaders brokered an historic agreement this week when they unanimously backed a seven hundred and fifty billion euro (€750bn) Covid recovery fund.

 

The fund – which is being called Next Generation EU – will go towards EU regions and countries that have been badly hit by the Covid pandemic. The likes of Spain and Italy are likely to be big beneficiaries of the fund.

 

Ireland is expected to get around €1.3billion in grants from the fund.

 

So what can we expect from it? Karen Coleman has this report.
