3rd Annual Convention of the European Platform against Poverty and Social Exclusion with the participation of José Manuel Barroso

86 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the 3rd annual Convention of the European Platform against Poverty and Social Exclusion. Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, also took part in the Convention. José Manuel Barroso made a speech entitled "Acting together. Learning from each other" on this occasion. He notably called for common action to deal with poverty and social exclusion.
Since 2012, the Youth Employment Package, including the Youth Guarantee and the Youth Employment Initiative, plus the Social Investment Package had been launched. The Communication "Strengthening the social dimension of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU)" was also adopted by the EC the previous month. But many challenges still laid ahead, and José Manuel Barroso urged all levels, European, national, regional and local level, to act together and to learn from each other on how to deal with poverty.
