European Council sets five priorities for the EU's next years

The European Council has set a direction for the legislative work over the next five years.

After the European Council on Friday 27 June, European Council President Herman Van Rompuy listed five priorities and stated that this strategic programme aims to achieve what the people expect from the EU and pays particular attention to the economic priorities. The conclusions state that the European Council set five overarching priorities which will guide the work of the European Union over the next five years - stronger economies with more jobs; societies enabled to empower and protect; a secure energy and climate future; a trusted area of fundamental freedoms; and effective joint action in the world.
