European Council: President Barroso calls for decisive action to implement Compact for Growth and Jobs
President Barroso has sent a report to Heads of State and Government in which he calls on them to redouble their efforts to implement the Compact for Growth and Jobs.
Agreed by the June European Council, the implementation of the Compact for Growth and Jobs needs to be speeded up. This is the key message of the report of President Barroso sent out today to the member states.
While underlining progress made, for example on the capital increase of the European Investment Bank or on pilot project bonds, the report highlights the disappointing results in other areas.
