Summary/Abstract: The COVID-19 pandemic is prompting the German government to reformulate its plans for the presidency of the Council of the EU starting on 1 July. Germany will focus on restarting the EU economy, taking into account the green energy transformation and the development of the EU’s digital policy. However, the key to achieving this goal will be the development of a compromise between the EU’s North and South regarding the principles of providing assistance and creating common financial tools in the euro area.
