Weekly meeting of the Barroso Commission: round table
The Members of the European Commission gathered on 29 May 2013 in Brussels for their weekly meeting.
They adopted the EC's annual set of policy recommendations to EU Member States, designed to move Europe beyond the crisis and strengthen the foundations for growth. These recommendations are based on detailed analyses of each country's situation and provide guidance to governments on how to boost their growth potential, increase competitiveness and create jobs in 2013-2014. Taken together, they represent an ambitious set of reforms for the EU economy. As part of the package, which marks the culmination of the third European Semester of policy coordination, the Commission has also adopted several decisions under the Excessive Deficit Procedure.
