EU 2020 Strategy


The European Commission has published its "EU 2020" strategy in March 2010. According to the Commission, this strategy should enable the EU to make a full recovery from the crisis, while speeding up the move towards a smart and green economy. Despite some shortcomings, UEAPME believes that this document can really make a difference and bring Europe back on its pre-crisis growth path and should therefore be fully supported by Member States.
