Communication adopted by the European Commission on 29 January 2020, setting out its annual work programme (CWP 2020).

Further information:

The Work Programme sets out the actions the Commission is meant to take throughout the year, aiming to turn the Political Guidelines made public by the President of the European Commission into tangible benefits for European citizens, businesses and society. The driving force behind this first Work Programme of the mandate was said to be about grasping the opportunities that the twin ecological and digital transitions bring along. It also reflects the main priorities for the European Parliament and those in the European Council’s Strategic Agenda for 2019-2024. The Work Programme is focused around the six headline ambitions.

A number of Annexes were published alongside the Communication (which can be consulted on the European Commission's dedicated page on this Work Programme). An adjusted Work Programme was published by the Commission on 27 May 2020.
