The EC presented its country reports guiding the MSs to a more mature behaviour

The challenges defined by the EC vary significantly across countries but are mostly linked to public finances, employment, and growth. Even if the overall data are reassuring, as European economy is expected to grow for the seventh consecutive year in 2019, the risks of the population ageing, the technological changes, and the low productivity across the continent is very dangerous in a time of global uncertainty. The EU Member States should act collectively to boost growth and improve the living conditions of its citizens. The EC launched novelties on what regards EU funding, in particular, EU Cohesion Policy funds, which will be intensified to support the Member States in their action in favour of the most disadvantaged regions, to boost employment and productivity. This will ensure coherence between the coordination of economic policies and the use of EU funds, which are a significant part of the public investment in several Member States.

In the coming months, the Council is expected to discuss the Country Reports as well as the outcomes of the country’s reviews. Moreover, the Commission will hold bilateral meetings with the Member States to discuss the findings of the reports and how these analyses should support the countries.
