EU economic developments and projections (GEN - 1176.00)

European Parliament briefing

GEN - 1176.00. The European Parliament services have produced a briefing, providing a summary of the recent economic developments in the EU Member States and an overview of relevant economic projections forecasted by major international and EU institutions, as impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This October update will be followed by another one in November.

Economic developments

At the level of the European Parliament, closer follow-up of the COVID-19 pandemic is taking shape in the form of 5-10-page briefings that give an overview of the situation. While it is not possible to single out the HVACR industry as such, the overview gives a good impression of what is happening and what could be forecasted.
