To implement the EU Global Strategy, the EU has taken decisive steps on Security and Defence, and a package of initiatives proposed.

The package consists of three major pillars:

+ new political goals and ambitions for Europeans to take more responsibility for their own security and defence;
+ new financial tools to help Member States and the European defence industry to develop defence capabilities (('European Defence Action Plan').
+ a set of concrete actions as follow up to the EU-NATO Joint Declaration, July 2016, which identified areas of cooperation.

Together the three elements constitute a comprehensive package to boost security of the European Union and its citizens.
