European Council, Brussels, 24-25/10/2013


The Heads of State or Government of the European Union got together in Brussels for the European Council on 24 and 25 October 2013. The European Council focused on the digital economy, innovation and services. These areas have a particular potential for growth and jobs which must be rapidly mobilized. The Council provided concrete guidance so as to take full advantage of the existing potential. The European Council also looked at different economic and social policy areas. It took stock of the implementation of the initiatives taken in June in the fight against youth unemployment and the financing of the economy, in particular of small and medium-sized enterprises, and agreed on additional measures. It gave a new impetus to better regulation. The leaders held an in-depth discussion on completing the Economic and Monetary Union. They focused in particular on enhanced economic policy coordination, strengthening the social dimension of the Economic and Monetary Union and completing the Banking Union. As decided in June, the European Council will return to all these elements in December with a view to taking decisions. Furthermore, the European Council looks ahead to the Eastern Partnership Summit which will be held in Vilnius on 28 and 29 November 2013. Finally, the Heads of State or Government expressed their deep sadness at the recent tragic events in the Mediterranean in which hundreds of people lost their lives and decided to step up the EU's action so as to prevent such tragedies from happening again.
