On 27 June, Heads of States and Governments are gathering for the European Council meeting in Brussels. Combating youth unemployment will be at the top of the EU leaders' agenda. The number of young people who are unemployed or not in education has reached worryingly high levels in Europe. Heads of state and government will discuss how to address this issue, in particular the Youth Guarantee and instruments to support youth employment. Another key issue on which leaders are expected to send a strong signal is access to financing. In the present economic context it is crucial to restore normal lending to the economy and facilitate financing of investment, in particular for small and medium-sized enterprises. The leaders are also expected to endorse the country-specific recommendations. The recommendations will feed into member states’ decisions on national budgets, structural reforms and social policies. The endorsement will conclude the yearly cycle of member states' economic policy coordination, called the European Semester. Leaders will take stock of work on the deepening of the Economic and Monetary Union and discuss measures to support it. They will also touch upon enlargement, the area of freedom, security and justice, and the EU’s relations with its strategic partners.
