Interview with president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen

BERLIN (Reuters) - European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen expressed confidence that the European Union would emerge stronger from the crises triggered by Russia's war in Ukraine, in a pre-recorded speech to Germany's Ifo economic institute.

"We are profiting from the fact that our economic foundations are strong, but also from the fact that policymakers are taking a crystal-clear course in response to the current crises and the longer-term challenges," she said in an address to the Munich-based institute's annual meeting on Thursday.
