19.04.2010 - Recent economic developments in Europe provide the impetus for change, and the Europe 2020 strategy is the response. The strategy has the ambition of securing Europe's future economic growth and ensuring our place in the new global order.
Issue 17 of DG ECFIN's quarterly magazine looks to the next decade with a report on how the Europe 2020 strategy could not only help get the EU economy out of crisis but also revitalise it over the longer term. In an interview, newly appointed Economic and Monetary Affairs Commissioner Olli Rehn sets out his vision for his five-year term. Other topics covered include divergences in the euro area, potential new and innovative financing mechanisms, and how DG ECFIN's business and consumer surveys are produced.
