Further information:

The 2020 Annual Sustainable Growth Strategy presented a new economic agenda and set clear priorities for the coordination of economic and employment policies in the European Union (EU). Its aim of competitive sustainability fully reflects the ambition of the European Green Deal and rests on four dimensions: environmental sustainability, productivity gains, fairness and macroeconomic stability. An approach centred on these four dimensions allows exploiting synergies, addressing trade-offs and presenting solutions to ensure the economy works for people and the planet.

The assessment presented in the country reports aim to help to ensure the translation of these objectives into concrete policies at Member States’ level.

The Council of the European Union adopted a set of conclusions on the European Semester 2020 country reports and the implementation of the 2019 country-specific recommendations.
