The call is open to react to the national Recovery and Resilience Plans, as put forth earlier from the viewpoints of key economic actors, with an emphasis on private enterprise, investment and their leading role in buttressing the recovery from the ground-up. Are the plans presented fit to not only jumpstart the European economy but also strategically place it on the path to long-term economic prosperity?
