Communication published by the European Commission on 17 October 2023, setting out its annual work programme (CWP 2024).

Further information:

Every year, the European Commission adopts a Work Programme setting out the list of actions to take in the coming year. The Work Programme informs the public and the co-legislators of our political commitments to present new initiatives, withdraw pending proposals and review existing EU legislation.

The CWP for 2024 focuses on simplifying rules for citizens and businesses across the European Union (EU). This Work Programme reflects on the achievements throughout the mandate, ahead of the European Parliament elections scheduled for 2024. It also outlines proposals for the months ahead, limited to those still needed to deliver on established commitments, or to tackle emerging challenges. In accordance with the focus of the CWP, 26 additional proposals and initiatives have been identified to reduce administrative burden without lowering social, safety, consumer protection, environmental or economic standards.

The newly proposed initiatives build on the annual State of the European Union (SOTEU) address, delivered by the President of the European Commission in September 2023.
