Ten Out Of 27 EU Members Are Critical Of The European Recovery Plan

We approach at the European Council on Friday with two distinct groups of countries clearly expressing concerns about the Commission’s proposal. Some because they do not welcome any attempt to share risks, while others believe the programme benefits nations they consider to be rich. These are the axis of the frugals (Netherlands, Austria, Denmark and Sweden) and the Visegrads (Hungary, Poland, Czech Republic and Slovakia). These would be joined by Finland and Estonia, which have also shown their discomfort with the proposal.
