Poland vetoes international tax agreement while all eyes are on France’s presidential elections

This week, our Beyond the Byline podcast focuses on Poland’s veto of a proposal for an EU directive that would implement the internationally agreed 15% minimum effective tax rate for large multinationals. What were the reactions, and what are the next steps? I talked to EURACTIV’s economy and jobs editor, Janos Amman, to hear more.

We are also talking about the highly anticipated presidential elections in France. What can we expect, who leads the race, and how could the outcome influence the EU Council’s rotating presidency? To answer these questions, I was joined by Davide Basso, who covers the elections for EURACTIV.COM and EURACTIV France.
