Europe 2020: the European Union strategy for growth and employment
Communication (COM(2010) 2020 final) – Europe 2020: A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth
WHAT IS THE AIM OF THE EUROPE 2020 STRATEGY?
The Europe 2020 strategy aims to ensure that the economic revival of the European Union (EU) following the economic and financial crisis is supported by a series of reforms in order to build solid foundations for growth and job creation by 2020. While addressing the structural weaknesses of the EU’s economy and economic and social issues, the strategy also takes account of the longer-term challenges of globalisation, pressure on resources and ageing.
