What we achieve we must dream first. This statement I would like to use to introduce the Reactivating Navarra Plan. A plan that is also a mandate which means it is aimed not just to fulfil some goals but to be a response to social concerns in the face of the demise of the contemporary model. The Government’s mandate, as set out in this Plan, is to move towards a new social and economic model.
The COVID-19 crisis has spurred us to change. It has been a tragedy in terms of loss of life, lost jobs and everyday life restrictions, calling for greater sacrifice and civic duty, for the sake of common good.
I agree with the President of the European Commission when she says that Europe must lead the transition to a healthy planet and a new digital world. But it can only do so honouring the European ways of living that is, connecting people and improving the social market economy, a system unique in the world.
This executive summary outlines the Government agenda for this term of office, but it is also an attempt to go beyond this time limit. For our efforts to succeed, we need citizens and stakeholders to see themselves reflected in this document. If everyone, instead of looking after their own interests, works for the common good, this will result in greater progress for us all.
Our Plan is in line with the EU recovery plan and the European Green Deal, promoting an economy for the people, a digital Europe, the protection of European lifestyles, a stronger Europe, and European democracy reloaded. Based on these core ideas, which act as bridges of European thought, we have designed a few courses of action.
Public policy must be designed for the present, but with eyes set on the future. And with a sense of action too. We are ambitious: Be realistic, demand the impossible! What is impossible here is to stick to the current model. It is unsustainable. This reactivation plan is in line with the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, urging countries to adopt bold, transformative measures to make the world more sustainable and resilient, and Next Generation EU, the agreement for the recovery of Europe.
