European Council Adopts Europe 2020 Strategy
The European Council adopted "Europe 2020", a new strategy for jobs and smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. The strategy constitutes a coherent framework for the Union to mobilise all of its instruments and policies and for the Member States to take enhanced coordinated action. It promotes the delivery of structural reforms. The implementation process is guided and monitored. A discussion on how specific policies can be mobilised to unlock the EU's growth potential, starting with innovation and energy policies, is to take place.
