Renewable hydrogen will be key to the climate-neutral economy of the future. I’m proud that Europe is the world’s clean hydrogen trailblazer. Now is the time to invest in our leadership. €30 billion from #NextGenerationEU will go to clean energy, including clean hydrogen.

Let's be better prepared against future pandemics. I welcome the start of negotiations for a global agreement on prevention, preparedness and response. I also support a new financial intermediary fund for global health security. #WHASpecial nitter.fdn.fr/i/broadcasts/1dj…

The EU & its Member States will work hard to achieve the global vaccination target of 70% in 2022. We will support capacity building for sequencing, testing, treatments and vaccination. We aim to share at least 700 million doses by mid-2022 with low & middle-income countries.

We take the #Omicron variant very seriously. While scientists analyse it in detail, it is important to remain vigilant and to protect ourselves. Get vaccinated, if not done yet, and take your booster as soon as possible.

To act in a timely, effective manner, proper information and analysis capacity is essential. This is why the EU needs its own Joint Situational Awareness Centre. Such a centre would help the EU bundle its know-how on countering hybrid attacks. nitter.fdn.fr/i/broadcasts/1RD…

Lukashenko has failed in his bid to undermine EU unity and solidarity. But we should learn the lessons. Our opponents will stop at nothing to destabilise us. To respond to such events, it is important that the EU and @NATO work hand in hand. nitter.fdn.fr/i/broadcasts/1DX…
