On 2 June, the European Commission presented its country-specific recommendations in the area of economic and employment policy. The recommendations are based on analysis of Member States' reports under the Europe 2020 strategy (national reform programmes) and the annual reports submitted under the Stability and Growth Pact (stability or convergence programmes).
On 5 May the European Commission launched a public consultation on Europe 2020. The consultation is a first step in a review of the Europe 2020 strategy.
