In Washington, speculation persists about the prospect of implementing a new support package, planned for the end of next week for the Covid-19 crisis prior to the end of the current parliament. Two projects of almost the same amount are now under discussion: the first, worth $908 billion, was tabled by the Democratic and Republican Senators’ bipartisan committee last week. The second project, worth $916 billion, was introduced to Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday.

Mr. Mnuchin and Nancy Pelosi, the House of Representatives’ Democratic leader, both announced ‘change’ in the talks on Thursday, but an agreement remains to be reached with Ms. Pelosi remaining in support of the $908 billion Senate proposal.
