The European Commission adopted on 27 October 2015 its 2016 Work Programme, the second of the Juncker Commission. The work programme shows how the Commission plans to give practical effect to the political priorities set out by the President. It provides a multiannual overview to help stakeholders and the other EU institutions plan their work with the Commission.

The preparation for this Work Programme was launched with the State of the Union address of President Juncker in front of the European Parliament on 9 September and the Letter of Intent sent by him and First Vice-President Timmermans to the Presidents of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union on the same day. It followed a constructive dialogue with the two other institutions.
