The European Commission has announced its focus for 2021. As well as continuing to work on managing the effects of the pandemic, its priorities will include:
- a “Fit for 55” packages to reduce emissions by at least 55% by 2030 as part of the drive to a climate-neutral Europe by 2050;
- a roadmap of clearly defined targets towards Europe’s “digital decade”, including a new European e-ID; and
- to strengthen the economy, including revising the BRRD, encouraging cross-border investment and improving AML laws.
