Future of social Europe: challenges and the way ahead
On 28 November 2014 BUSINESSEUROPE released a brochure on the future of social Europe, which draws a portrait of the main challenges and the way ahead for social Europe in the next years. Social problems in Europe are not due to a deficit of social policy but to a lack of global competitiveness. Brave decisions are needed to strengthen our competitiveness in order to create more jobs. Employment, social and skills policies have a particular role to ensure that growth comes with jobs, and to stimulate and better match people’s capacities with the jobs available on labour markets. The Commission has an important role to play in building consensus on a European framework for national labour market reforms.
