Overcoming the crisis - Towards a policy programme for sustainable recovery

Extraordinary joint meeting of the ECO and SOC Sections and the Europe 2020 Steering Committee Meeting - Brussels, Belgium

The financial crisis in Europe has profound consequences both for economic and social stability in general and for the economic governance and social solidarity of the EU structure as a whole. This is why the Bureau of the European Economic and Social Committee decided to convene an extraordinary joint meeting of the ECO and SOC Sections and our Europe 2020 Steering Committee in order thoroughly to assess the situation, update and re-focus on what the EU must do to alleviate the crisis and restore growth, stability and cohesion.
