ROME – Conte “ready to fight” as EU Recovery Fund decision looms

“We’re ready, we’ve studied all the dossiers and we hope the meeting will be useful”, Conte told the press before leaving to Brussels, where he will attend the European Council summit from 17 to 18 July to reach an agreement on the EU Recovery Fund and the EU’s long-term budget known as the MFF.

“This is a crucial moment for the EU. The pandemic emergency is a global challenge. We have all been forced to face sacrifices we could have never predicted”, said Conte.

“When a country can reap an opportunity even in a phase like this, it shows its greatness as a country, which is what Italy needs to be,” he added.

During the presentation of a new task force on the issue of gender disparity, Conte said that “we have to improve the condition of women, because that is the way to help save our planet”.
