Change of plans on the EU agenda

In my previous post, we were counting down to the first one hundred days in for the (new) Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and the flagship initiatives and priorities, such as the Green Deal, minimum wage discussions, AI, and more.

While I have recently returned to the NFU secretariat (although not returning to the physical workplace) after finishing my thesis, it feels like ages since I went on study leave in the beginning of March this year.

Remember to look at the big picture

That is my key takeaway from my eleven years at NFU. When I started in November 2008, the big picture in the Nordic and European finance sectors was changing dramatically.
