Graph of the week: European Semester 2015 - Macroeconomic imbalances and government deficits

The 2015 European Semester kicked off last November with the Annual Growth Survey, which outlined the Commission's three-pillar jobs and growth strategy: boosting investment, accelerating structural reforms and pursuing responsible, growth-friendly fiscal consolidation.

The infographic below illustrates the macroeconomic and fiscal situation of the 28 EU Member States.
