For the sixth edition of its ‘Town Hall’ for members, AmCham EU connected with Nicolae Ștefănuță, MEP (RE, RO), Vice-Chair of the Delegation for the relations with the United States, European Parliament.

Mr Ștefănuță shared his insights on the COVID-19 emergency and on the work of the European institutions, particularly that of the European Parliament during these unprecedented times. He also highlighted the fact that, despite the easing of lock-down measures, the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic continues and we are not back to ‘business-as-usual'. To fight the COVID-19 emergency globally, he stressed the need to link solidarity to international cooperation, the need for transatlantic solidarity, the important role of business and the need to better communicate at the national level about the European institutions' response to the crisis.
