Over the last four years, the annual country-specfic recommendations proposed by the Commission have been used as a compass to exit from the crisis and re-build growth. In this Communication (2 June 2014), the Commission summarises its analysis of progress made over the last year, as spelled out in the recommendations.
These country-specific recommendations outline reform priorities in individual Member States for the coming 12-18 months and, where relevant, take account of the need to tackle imbalances.
The Communication has two annexes. Annex 1 gives an overview of the recommendations; Annex 2 sets out the state of play regarding Member States’ Europe 2020 targets. More detailed information on each Member State is given in the analyticals staff working document. Comparative background information is available on the Commission’s website (http://ec.europa.eu/europe2020/making-it-happen/country-specific-recomme...).
