Strategic Agenda 2019-24


On 20 June 2019, the European Council agreed on an agenda for the EU for the next five years. 'A new strategic agenda 2019-2024' sets out the priority areas that will steer the work of the European Council and provide guidance for the work programmes of other EU institutions. The 6 Commission priorities for 2019-24 are as follows:

A European Green Deal: Europe aims to be the first climate-neutral continent by becoming a modern, resource-efficient economy.

A Europe fit for the digital age: The EU’s digital strategy to empower people with a new generation of technologies.

An economy that works for people: Create a more attractive investment environment, and growth that creates quality jobs, especially for young people and small businesses.

A stronger Europe in the world: Strengthen the EU's voice in the world by championing multilateralism and a rules-based global order.

Promoting our European way of life: Protect the rule of law if it is to stand up for justice and the EU’s core values.

A new push for European democracy: Give Europeans a bigger say and protect our democracy from external interference such as disinformation and online hate messages.
