EU countries should act on their economic reform pledges, say MEPs

Plenary Session Economic and monetary affairs22-10-2014 - 14:06

EU countries need to act more like owners of economic policy reform pledges they themselves signed up to, MEPs stress in a report adopted on Wednesday. Given that only 10% of the European Commission's country-specific reform recommendations (CSRs) for 2013 were implemented in full and that little or no progress was made on 45% of them, MEPs believe "there is an inconsistency between European commitment and national implementation of the CSRs by member states".

European Union member states must back their political pledges with money to revive growth, create jobs, encourage research and development, and enable the EU to do its foreign policy job, said MEPs as they reversed the Council's cuts in the draft EU budget for 2015 on Wednesday. An agreement on additional funds for 2014 is a prerequisite for Parliament to do a deal on next year's budget with Council, MEPs added.

Efter to mandater og 10 år som leder af Europa-Kommissionen er José Manuel Barroso klar til at give faklen videre til Jean Claude Juncker. Vi talte med Europa-Kommissionens formand lige efter hans tale i plenum tirsdag den 21. oktober om evalueringen af sit andet mandat.

Plenarmøde Institutioner21-10-2014 - 14:22
European Semester debate (L-R): Philippe DE BACKER (Rapporteur), Benedetto DELLA VEDOVA (Council), Jyrki KATAINEN (Commission), Dariusz ROSATI (PPE), Tibor SZANYI (S&D), Sampo TERHO (ECR), Sylvie GOULARD (ALDE), Marisa MATIAS (GUE/NGL), Bas EICKHOUT (Verts/ALE), Steven WOOLFE (NI).  

Inden for rammerne af det europæiske semester samordner EU-medlemslandene deres økonomiske politikker for at skabe grundlaget for vækst, beskæftigelse og afbalancerede budgetter. Men som MEP’erne påpegede i dag, skal anbefalingerne gennemføres bedre og processen med at nå frem til dem være genstand for mere demokratisk kontrol. Betænkningen om det europæiske semester vil blive stemt onsdag. (Læs mere: Det europæiske semester )
