European Commission priorities: 2019-2024


Priorities - Green Deal
Europe aims to be the first climate-neutral continent by becoming a modern, resource-efficient economy.
An economy that works for people
The EU must create a more attractive investment environment, and growth that creates quality jobs, especially for young people and small businesses.
A new push for European democracy
We need to give Europeans a bigger say and protect our democracy from external interference such as disinformation and online hate messages.

The Recovery Plan for Europe

In addition to the 6 main priorities, the European Commission is also spear-heading a programme to support Europe’s recovery following the social and economic havoc caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
