On Monday 25 May, 17:00 – 18:30, ECON Members had an exchange of views on competition policy with Executive Vice-President Margrethe Vestager. The debate gave the opportunity to discuss about the response to the COVID-19 crisis. In particular, Members had the chance to quiz Mrs Vestager on the implementation of the Temporary State Aid Framework applicable since March 2020.

The Temporary State Aid Framework enables Member States to use the full flexibility foreseen under Treaty's State aid rules to support their economy and help overcome the extremely difficult situation triggered by the Coronavirus outbreak.
The Temporary Framework has allowed Members States to obtain the Commission's green light on several national measures to help companies, workers and families.
