Dear MEL Topic Readers,

2020 was a terrible year for Europe. 2021 is unlikely to be much better

The European Union is a political and economical union of 27 nations with a population of about 450 million. After Brexit, there are no English-speaking nations in the union, and the top three native languages are German, French, and Italian, the total of which comprises 43% of the total EU citizens. The union intends to ensure the free movement of people, goods, services, and investment and has established a single market through a standardized system of laws. 2020 was a challenging year for the European Union as it lost the key member state, the UK, and suffered from the coronavirus pandemic. But will the union recover from these incidental damages this year? There seem to be ongoing challenges in maintaining the rule of law, integration, and financial discipline to keep the union united. Also, the union’s international stance needs to be managed sensitively especially when the tug of war between the US and China is becoming more intense and extensive.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about the challenges the EU is going to face this year.
