EU finance ministers endorse Czech National Recovery Plan

European Union finance ministers have endorsed the Czech Republic’s National Recovery Plan, opening the way for the country to receive part of the funds allotted for its post-pandemic economic recovery. The Czech Republic should receive the first part of the 180 billion crown economic aid package to which it is entitled later this month. It can collect up to 13 percent of the overall amount this year, the rest should be made available in the years to come.
