European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) (debate)

  Georgi Pirinski, rapporteur for the opinion of the Committee on Budgetary Control. – Mr President, it is the strong conviction of the Committee on Budgetary Control (CONT) that, under shared management, the European Social Fund Plus (ESF+) should pursue the goal of ‘investment for jobs and growth’, as set out in the future Common Provisions Regulation (CPR), and contribute to the policy objective of a more social Europe, implementing the European Pillar of Social Rights set out in the same regulation.

In accordance with this policy objective, the ESF+ should support a number of specific objectives, of which the first is to improve access to quality and sustainable employment that adheres to all existing union labour laws and respects the rights of all job seekers – in particular the young and long—term unemployed and inactive people – while promoting self—employment and the social economy.
