This opinion will focus on three of the nine instruments contained in the New Pact on Migration and Asylum released by the European Commission in November 2020. The opinion deals with: i) the new screening regulation; ii) the amended proposal revising the asylum procedures regulation; iii) the amended proposal for a recast Eurodac regulation. The EESC believes that the new regulations make a positive contribution to more effective EU border security. Nevertheless the EESC questions the effective implementation of the proposed new procedures and underlines that the effectiveness of the need to be constantly measured through systems monitoring respect for fundamental rights, particularly as regards the rights of vulnerable people.
The European Semester kicks off its 2021 exercise with the publication of the Annual Sustainable Growth Strategy. In this document, the Commission outlines the economic and employment policy priorities for the EU, this year focusing on the recovery from the Covid-19 crisis. The Recovery and Resilience Facility is the key recovery instrument at the heart of NextGenerationEU and is intrinsically linked to the European Semester. National plans should address country-specific recommendations of recent years, enhance economic growth potential, job creation and economic and social resilience, as well as meet the green and digital transitions. To this end, it is crucial that Member States engage in broad policy dialogue with social partners and all other relevant stakeholders when preparing their plans.
