 “The coronavirus crisis has injected real urgency into our work to create a Capital Markets Union. The strength of our economic recovery will depend crucially on how well our capital markets function and whether people and businesses can access the investment opportunities and market financing they need.We need to generate massive investments to make the EU economy more sustainable, digital, inclusive and resilient. Today's Action Plan aims to tackle head-on some of the remaining barriers to a single market for capital.”
