Employment and education amongst top priorities for the Council of the EU



The Netherlands, current president of the Council of the European Union, has together with the upcoming presidencies of Slovakia and Malta (also known as the ‘trio’) presented their long-term goals and agenda for the coming 18 months.

Amongst the main priorities are employment and education. In their work programme, the trio states that inclusive, smart and sustainable growth, jobs and competitiveness remain the top priority over the next 18 months.

With unemployment still a big issue within the European Union, special attention will be given to legislative proposals dealing with this issue, especially in the area of youth and long-term unemployment.
