EU revises downward economic growth outlook

Valdis Dombrovskis, Executive Vice President of the European Commission
said the EU is revising its economic growth outlook downwards and inflation expectations upwards
but the EU economy is showing resilience


“Growth (for the economy – IF) will continue this year and next, but slower than previously expected
” he said on Tuesday after the meeting of the European Union’s Economic and Financial Council (ECOFIN)


The European Union is the first in the list of advanced economies to be hit
This is not just because of our proximity to Russia and Ukraine
It is also due to the fact that we rely heavily on fossil fuels for energy supplies from Russia,” Dombrovskis added


Dombrovskis reiterated the importance of ending this reliance, which the REPowerEU plan aims to achieve
The EU energy mix will diversify away from Russian natural gas, as well as accelerate fossil fuel replacement with renewable energy

It also covered the few reforms and investments that were missing from national recovery and resilience plans

The Vice-President of the European Commission emphasized that the “extension” of the general exemption
clause would give member States room for maneuver to respond if necessary
this does not mean, however, that the financial rules (EU-IF) are suspended
