136 views

On 8 May 2013, Viviane Reding, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, gave a press conference on the EU Citizenship Report 2013 at the European Commission, in Brussels. On this date, the European Commission unveiled a new push to reinforce EU citizens’ rights with a series of actions to tackle obstacles that citizens still face in their everyday life. The 2013 EU Citizenship Report sets out 12 concrete ways to help Europeans make better use of their EU rights, from looking for a job in another EU country to ensuring stronger participation in the democratic life of the Union. Key proposals include making it easier for people to work and do training in another EU country; reducing excessive paperwork for EU citizens living and travelling in the EU; and eliminating barriers to cross-border shopping. During the European Year of Citizens, the EU Citizenship Report is the Commission's answer to the numerous calls from EU citizens who have shared problems they have experienced when travelling, moving to or shopping in another EU country.
