Communication presented on 27 February 2019 by the European Commission as part of the 2019 European Semester winter package.
In recent years the European Union has moved from economic recovery to solid expansion, and for 2019 Europe’s economy is set to continue expanding notwithstanding the more uncertain outlook projected. To ensure such a continued economic expansion, Member States will need to implement effective structural reforms, engage in responsible fiscal policies and lay out targeted investment strategies. The more effective link between the European Semester and EU funding for 2021-2027 as presented in this year’s package will provide the necessary structure to ensure the effective delivery of the most targeted investment priorities.
The European Semester offers the Commission, Member States, social partners and stakeholders at all levels the opportunity to engage in a permanent dialogue with one another throughout the year. The country reports published with this Communication draw on in-depth exchanges with governments, national authorities and stakeholders at both technical and political level, including bilateral meetings held in December 2018. Their findings will be presented in the Commission’s representation offices in the capitals of the Member States, and will be followed up in further bilateral and multilateral meetings.
