Contribution of ESI Funds to the Commission's priorities: The Economic and Monetary Union
|Available languages :|
For the first time, the 2014-2020 programming period has involved so-called Country Specific Recommendations (CSRs) and National Reform Programmes (NRPs). As a result, this programming period should strengthen ties between the goals of the European Semester process, the EU’s top economic priorities and the programming of the European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI Funds).
By linking this new policy with the Stability and Growth Pact and the support for structural reforms in Member States, the ESI Funds can make the best use of investments and offer an instrument to ensure the financial and economic stability of the Union. It is important to assess the social effects of these structural reforms, while making the fight against poverty a priority.
