"The Autumn 2010 Eurobarometer figures demonstrate that European citizens clearly see stronger European coordination and joint action as part of the solution for the European Union to emerge from the doldrums and return to strong economic growth and higher employment. It is with this spirit that we are starting the European Semester today," Justice Commissioner Viviane Reding said.

The Autumn 2010 Eurobarometer, the bi-annual EU opinion poll which was conducted from mid-November to early December 2010, shows that 77% of Europeans think that stronger coordination of economic and fiscal policies among EU Member States would be effective in fighting the economic crisis. 75% support a stronger EU supervision of the most important international financial groups.
