The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Economic and Financial Affairs (DG ECFIN) is organising its annual workshop on fiscal policy, dedicated this year to the role of fiscal policy in mitigating the COVID-19 crisis. The workshop will be organised in form of a webinar with high-profile speakers from academia and international institutions. It will be structured in 2 parts: an introduction by Commissioner Gentiloni, followed by a keynote speech by Laurence Boone (OECD) on ‘Tackling the fallout from COVID-19’; and a high-level policy panel discussing the role of fiscal policy in mitigating the effects of the COVID crisis.
