Von der Leyen proposes 'green' economic recovery

President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen (pictured) said on Thursday that the world needs an initiative that will link economic recovery with the Sustainable Development Goals to make the planet "more inclusive and greener than the one we know."

Speaking at a United Nations event dedicated to the financial reconstruction once the coronavirus pandemic is over, Von der Leyen noted the economy needs to be reshaped and to become "more resilient and sustainable."

Earlier at the same event, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres (pictured) suggested a debt relief plan that would be offered to low and middle-income countries to help them combat the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.
