LISBON (Reuters) - Portugal’s Prime Minister Antonio Costa said on Monday the European Commission’s recovery plan, worth 750 billion euros (£673 billion), is robust and balanced enough to tackle the economic impact caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
“Our opinion is the Commission’s proposal is timely and smart,” Costa told a news conference with foreign journalists in Lisbon. “It is robust enough to respond to this crisis. It is balanced.”
