芬兰央行行长呼吁欧盟团结一致,修复因新冠肺炎而受损的经济

新华网赫尔辛基6月9日电芬兰《赫尔辛报》9日报道,芬兰央行行长雷恩呼吁欧盟成员国共同努力,修复因新冠肺炎疫情而受损的经济。


"欧元危机的关键教训是,如果我们迅速而明智地采取行动,联合行动可以防止经济危机和高失业率升级," Rehn在接受The daily采访时表示。


他警告称:“另一方面,拖延和完全依赖国家解决方案将加剧危机,加剧企业破产浪潮,并有陷入长期衰退的风险。”


5月底,欧盟委员会提出了一项7500亿欧元的复苏基金,欧盟将以从金融市场贷款的形式筹集这笔资金,以修复经济损失。其中5000亿欧元将以赠款的形式提供给成员国,其余2500亿欧元将以贷款的形式提供。


据《赫尔辛日报》报道,雷恩支持这项提议。不过,他指出,目前还不清楚提案中紧急资助的具体条件是什么。


“条件是至关重要的。资金必须用于卫生、改善可持续经济增长和就业的条件、实现气候目标和促进数字化。所有这些都是欧洲社会和经济改革的重要目标。


"该提议将使整个欧洲的复苏更加平衡,也符合依赖出口的芬兰的利益," Rehn告诉该报。


芬兰新任财政部长马蒂•万哈宁(Matti Vanhanen)在周二被任命后立即举行的新闻发布会上也强调了欧盟层面措施对从COVID-19危机中恢复的重要性。


由于六个最大的欧盟国家是芬兰40%的出口接受国,他说:“我们主要贸易伙伴的复苏对芬兰经济至关重要。”


万哈宁强调了欧盟国家联合行动的有效性。他说:“如果所有国家都走自己的路,就会损失资金。”


国际货币基金组织(IMF) 4月中旬估计,2020年欧元区经济增长前景可能为- 7.5%。欧洲央行行长克里斯蒂娜·拉加德5月下旬表示,2020年,由于冠状病毒感染,欧元区经济将收缩8%到12%。

 

HELSINKI, June 9 (Xinhua) -- Olli Rehn, governor of the Bank of Finland, called on European Union (EU) member states to work together to repair the economy damaged by the COVID-19 pandemic, reported Finnish daily Helsingin Sanomat on Tuesday.

"The key lesson of the euro crisis is that joint action can prevent the economic crisis and high unemployment from escalating if we act quickly and wisely," said Rehn during an interview with the daily.

"On the other hand, delaying and relying solely on national solutions will exacerbate the crisis, exacerbate the wave of corporate bankruptcies and risk a long-term recession," he warned.

At the end of May, the European Commission proposed a 750-billion-euro recovery fund, which the EU would raise in the form of loans from financial markets to repair the economic damage. Of the fund, 500 billion euros would be provided to member states in the form of grants and the rest 250 billion euros in loans.

Rehn supports the proposal, according to Helsingin Sanomat. However, he pointed out it is not yet clear from the proposal what exactly the conditions for emergency funding would be.

"Conditionality is essential. Funding must be used for health, improving the conditions for sustainable economic growth and employment, achieving climate goals and promoting digitalization. All of these are important goals for the reform of European societies and economies," emphasized Rehn.

"The proposal will enable a more balanced recovery throughout Europe, and it is also in the interests of export-dependent Finland," Rehn told the daily.

Speaking at a press conference immediately after his appointment on Tuesday, Matti Vanhanen, the new Finnish finance minister, also underlined the importance of the EU level measures for recovery from the COVID-19 crisis.

As the six largest EU countries are recipients of 40 percent of Finnish exports, he said: "The recovery of our major trading partners is vital to the Finnish economy."

Vanhanen underscored the efficiency of joint action among EU countries. "If all countries pursue their own course, money is lost," he said.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimated in mid-April that the economic growth outlook in the eurozone could be minus 7.5 percent in 2020. European Central Bank (ECB) President Christine Lagarde said in late May that the eurozone economy will shrink by 8 to 12 percent in 2020 due to the coronavirus.
