Answer given by Mr Andor on behalf of the Commission
Question reference: E-002453/2013

The Commission adopted its proposal for Youth Guarantee on 5 December 2012, and it was swiftly agreed by the EPSCO of 28 February 2013. It is for Member States to implement the scheme.

In paragraph 27 of the recommendation the Council recommends that Member States implement the schemes as soon as possible. In the case of most severe budgetary difficulties and higher rates of NEET(1)s or youth unemployment, gradual implementation could be considered.

While Member States can finance directly their Youth Guarantee schemes including with the support of the ESF, those eligible could also use the amount of EUR 6 billion dedicated for Youth Employment Initiative as decided by the European Council at its Summit of 7-8 February. The legislative process to adopt the practical modalities is ongoing and they should be operational for 2014.

The Commission will monitor the implementation of Youth Guarantee schemes through the multi-lateral surveillance of the Employment Committee within the framework of the European Semester, and address, where appropriate, country-specific recommendation to Member States.
