“It was an excellent meeting with the President of the Senate Casellati” writes on Twitter the President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen. And on the other hand, the face to face between the two presidents lasted more than three quarters of an hour, beyond the expected times.
The president of the European Commission wanted to underline how “the Italian Parliament has a crucial role to play in guaranteeing the success of Next Generation EU”, also explaining that the “Italian recovery plan will help kickstart the green transition, implement the reforms necessary for a solid recovery and to promote gender equality ”.
Casellati was also satisfied: “With von der Leyen we underlined the great success of the EU Commission for the vaccination plan, to which Italy gave great support and this then allowed us together to establish the rules for economic recovery through the instrument of the Recovery. The issues we touched on were many and concern the various points of the reforms that we are going to make in a short time and as president of the Senate and in my role of guarantee I reiterated our project to implement the reforms with a sort of stringent roadmap “.
