Prepare yourself for change. This was my answer during the online Q&A with @ep_eye earlier today when asked what I would have liked to have known as a graduate. We will all have to transform ourselves over the course of our careers.
I was so pleased to answer questions from young people today during an online Q&A for @ep_eye. We covered topics such as climate change, the economic recovery from the coronavirus, and how young graduates can prepare themselves for today’s working world.
I’ll be taking part in an online Q&A on the ECB’s response to the coronavirus pandemic as part of @ep_eye on Wednesday 27 May at 09:30 CET.

I was recently asked by @financialtimes about the first thing I’ll do after lockdown. I did not know that I would not see my family for 10 weeks, other than on a screen. When I saw my 14-month-old grandson kiss the phone to wish me goodbye, I knew what I missed most.

Today’s #EuropeDay marks the 70th anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, which laid the foundation for the European Union we have today. In my remarks yesterday at the State of the Union Conference, I shared my view that the pandemic we now face can be our “Schuman moment”.
Great progress made today by the Eurogroup on shaping Europe’s road to recovery. The European Stability Mechanism’s Pandemic Crisis Support – a unique tool – will provide important assistance to all euro area Member States that need it.
Thank you to @bloomberg, @mikebloomberg and @flacqua for hosting today’s webcast on reopening the economy while protecting public health. Balancing economic and public health will be crucial in ensuring everybody – families, firms and governments – can bounce back.
At our monetary policy press conference I shared, on behalf of the entire Eurosystem and ECB, our condolences to those mourning the loss of loved ones to the coronavirus and our gratitude to those on the front line of the fight.

The coronavirus pandemic is a truly global challenge. As I have said before, solidarity is in fact self-interest. So all countries must work together – first to defeat the coronavirus and then to rebuild our economies. This week’s virtual #IMFMeetings were a welcome opportunity to hear from colleagues on the effectiveness of their various policy responses, share information and coordinate policy actions.
