Undeclared work in Europe undermines the European ideals of the rule of law, security, solidarity, social and fiscal justice, free market competition and the free movement of workers. Therefore, the setting up of a European Platform to combat irregular employment must be welcomed. The elimination of undeclared work in Europe would be a great achievement.

    The priorities of the European Economic and Social Committee during the Danish Presidency
    The Council of the European Union brings together ministerial representatives of the governments of the EU Member States, meeting in various formations according to the policy area under discussion. The Council’s legislative and political decisions are prepared by a large number of specialised working parties and are fed upwards through the Permanent Representatives Committee to the Council itself. Member State governments in turn chair the Council’s various meetings and represent the Council vis-à-vis the EU’s other institutions and the European Union vis-à-vis the larger world. These presidencies of the Council of the European Union traditionally establish a set of broad political priorities and a work programme. The Kingdom of Denmark holds the Presidency for the first half of 2012. Its priorities can be found at http://EU2012.dk This publication sets out some of the major activities of the European Economic and Social Committee during the period of the Danish Presidency from January to June 2012.

    Services of General Interest
    Services of general interest (SGI), whether they be economic or non-economic, meet basic needs and play a key role in promoting the social and territorial cohesion of the Union. Many network industries (gas, electricity, transport, postal services, telecommunications, etc.) which manage infrastructure with a transnational character provide services of general interest, which require special attention.

    Demographic change: a challenge and an opportunity - EESC Position Paper
    ”Let’s not talk about the formal retirement age. What is important is the value we attach to the time we spend at work. In a truly inclusive labour market with high quality work, people will want to – and will be able to – stay active longer. Satisfied people are more productive and this should be fully recognised as a key factor for growth.” Leila Kurki, President of the EESC’s Employment, Social Affairs and Citizenship Section

    Rio+20: a milestone on the road to sustainable development - EESC Position Paper

It is not merely about environmental issues. It aims at making the best possible use of our limited global resources by coordinating environmental, economic and social policies.” Mario Campli, President of the EESC’s Agriculture, Rural Development and Environment Section
