European Commission public consultation on Europe 2020 growth and jobs plan
Today the European Commission has launched a public consultation on the Europe 2020 strategy, the EU’s long-term growth and jobs plan. The aim of the consultation is to gather the views of all interested people and organisations on how the strategy has been working for the past four years, and on what its focus should be in the coming years. The consultation follows a 5 March communication taking stock of the Europe 2020 strategy, which showed that progress on meeting its five headline targets has been mixed. The Commission will draw on the contributions it receives during the public consultation when it presents proposals for the mid-term review of the Europe 2020 strategy early in 2015.
This will be followed by a discussion at next year’s spring European Council.
The consultation will run until 31 October 2014.
