EU countries need to do more to put their EU economic policy reform pledges into effect at home, especially in the euro area, urged Economic and Monetary Affairs Committee MEPs on Monday. Noting 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 also pressed the Commission and the Eurogroup President to see that they are put into practice.

Over 3,100 workers made redundant by Peugeot Citroën Automobiles (PSA) in France and crude steel producer Carsid SA Belgium are to get EU aid worth €13.5 million to help them to find or create new jobs. The European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aid, approved by Budgets Committee MEPs on Monday, still has to be approved by Parliament as a whole and the Council of Ministers. (Read more: EU job-search aid for former car workers in France and steel workers in Belgium )

Commissioner Štefan Füle’s plan to focus on strengthening democratic institutions and public administration in EU accession candidate and potential candidate countries was welcomed by Foreign Affairs Committee MEPs on Wednesday. In a debate following the Commission’s approval of the 2014 EU enlargement package earlier the same day, many also stressed the need to communicate the concrete and visible results of the EU enlargement process better.

(Read more: Three finalists for the 2014 Sakharov Prize for Freedom of thought )

The proposed European Globalisation Adjustment Fund (EGF) aid still needs to be approved by both Parliament as a whole and the Council of Ministers. (Read more: EU job-search aid for former metal workers in Spain and carmakers in Belgium )


Figures detailing 2015 budget funding for the EU’s priority growth and jobs policies, education - including the EU's Erasmus+ student mobility programme - and its humanitarian and support work in war-stricken and neighbouring zones were approved by Budgets Committee MEPs on Tuesday. These figures will be put to a vote by Parliament as a whole at the October plenary session. (Read more: Proper funding for EU priorities: Budgets Committee puts figures on 2015 budget )


Extra funds should be added to the EU’s 2015 budget for growth and jobs policies, education, including the EU's Erasmus+ student mobility programme, and EU humanitarian and support work in war-stricken zones, said the Budgets Committee in votes on Monday and Tuesday. It also recommended that the European Parliament as a whole should reverse cuts sought by the Council of Ministers in planned and actual expenses.
