EU Heads of State or Government, meeting in Versailles on 11 March, committed to “bolster European defence capabilities” in light of the Russian military aggression against Ukraine. They agreed to: 1) increase defence expenditures; 2) step up cooperation through joint projects; 3) close shortfalls and meet capability objectives; 4) boost innovation including through civil/military synergies; and 5) strengthen and develop our defence industry, including SMEs. Moreover, they invited “the Commission, in coordination with the European Defence Agency, to put forward an analysis of the defence investment gaps by mid-May and to propose any further initiative necessary to strengthen the European defence industrial and technological base.” The tasking was also integrated in the Strategic Compass on Security and Defence adopted by the Council and endorsed by the European Council in March 2022.

Cet avis supplémentaire sur la stratégie annuelle de croissance durable 2022 tient compte du processus Semestre en cours et fournit des éléments pour le prochain cycle. Cet exercice est particulièrement important cette année. Depuis l'attaque de la Russie contre l'Ukraine, le paysage géopolitique a radicalement changé, et les politiques ont été rapidement adaptées, comme en témoignent les communications sur "RepowerEU" et "Notre modèle de croissance européen". Le CESE attire également l'attention sur les résultats de la conférence sur l'avenir de l'Europe, qui envisage de nouvelles mesures politiques, notamment une convention visant à évaluer la nécessité de modifier le traité. Le semestre, qui subit lui-même un changement systémique, s'est révélé être un cadre crédible pour la coordination des politiques de l'UE pendant la pandémie. Dans le Paquet de printemps, les implications de la guerre en Ukraine sont à nouveau reflétées de manière exhaustive.
