Press conference by László Andor on the Social Investment Package


On 20 February 2013, László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, held a press conference on the Social Investment Package adopted by the European Commission. The European Commission called on Member States to prioritise social investment and to modernise their welfare states. This means better performing active inclusion strategies and a more efficient and more effective use of social budgets. The call features in a Communication on Social Investment for Growth and Cohesion just adopted by the Commission. The Communication also offers guidance to Member States on how best to use EU financial support, notably from the European Social Fund, to implement the outlined objectives. The Commission will closely monitor the performance of individual Member States' social protection systems through the European Semester and formulate, where necessary, Country Specific Recommendations.
