Glad to speak to @POTUS @JoeBiden this afternoon. As a fresh start for our 🇪🇺🇺🇸 partnership we agreed to suspend all tariffs related to the Airbus-Boeing disputes on aircraft & non-aircraft products for an initial period of 4 months. We also committed to solving these disputes.

Girls can do anything! They can be doctors, lawyers, astronauts. And yes! They can be presidents. As long as they believe in themselves. #IWD2021 https://t.co/OH1N3C70zO

Thank you dear Christine! It was great sharing our stories. Women will probably recognise familiar situations. But I hope that our stories will convince them to persevere and never give up on their goals. https://t.co/FeSue18kbF

A first #COVAX delivery of vaccines arrived in Chișinău, Moldova 🇲🇩 tonight.   14.400 vaccines will be given to the population. More will come.   This is global solidarity in action. I'm glad that #TeamEurope, one of COVAX's biggest contributors, can be a part of this.

Equal work deserves equal pay. And for equal pay, you need transparency. Women must know whether their employers treat them fairly. And when this is not the case, they must have the power to fight back and get what they deserve. ⤵

With the Pillar of #SocialRights & #EASE, our recovery will be job-rich, social and fair. Today we are giving guidance to EU countries on moving from crisis-job-support to creating jobs: 📌 Hiring young people 📌 New skills for all age groups 📌 Support to entrepreneurship https://t.co/oz4iXWFiu2

Creating jobs is one of our main priorities. So is making sure people have the right skills for those jobs. To help companies and people ease into job transitions, EU countries should develop measures in line with 3 strands. EU funds will help with this. #SocialRights https://t.co/HcoYkYzUru

I was happy to meet with @ediramaal. Albania can count on the EU's support to rebuild after the earthquake & tackle the pandemic. I hope to visit Albania soon. We discussed accession negotiations. Our position is clear: Albania's future is 🇪🇺 and negotiations should start. https://t.co/eEsCAynrXl
