20 views

On 21/10/2010, Joëlle Milquet, acting Belgian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for the Employment and Gender Equality, chaired the 3039th session of the Employment, Social Policy, Health and Consumer Affairs Council, in Luxembourg, in the presence of László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, to adopt new guidelines for the employment policies of the Member States. They gave a joint press conference after the meeting to explain the relevance of the subject. Indeed, these integrated guidelines represented the main tools of the Europe 2020 Strategy, the new ten-year strategy for jobs and smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. Over lunch, the Ministers also discussed on the choice of effective employment measures to mitigate jobless recovery in times of fiscal austerity. All agreed unanimously in saying that Europe should not make savings on key employment measures.
