    The EESC strongly believes in the importance of the next Semester cycle as a key instrument for implementing the Recovery and Resilience Facility.

    However, it is still concerned about the lack of clarity in most Member States as regards their National Recovery and Resilience Plan governance systems and the distribution of responsibilities for their implementation.

    The EESC would also draw attention to the need to measure progress in implementation, for which good monitoring indicators are needed; in this connection it welcomes the "Recovery and Resilience Scoreboard" initiative.

    Moreover, the COVID-19 crisis has highlighted the need for a strong industrial policy to avoid dependence on other economic zones for many products and services.

    The EESC wants to see real action in this respect by Member States, in terms of investment in education, infrastructure and industrial policy to raise employment and boost European industry.

      The objective of the opinion, requested by the Romanian Presidency, is to explore which measures and initiatives should be taken at EU and national level in order to promote organised philanthropy and eliminate barriers within the internal market that are hindering the realisation of its full potential, so as to maximize its contribution to EU values, such as cohesion, social justice and European Policies, and to the competitiveness of the European economy.
      The opinion is expected to feed into the Romanian presidency programme and into the political priorities for the new Commission.

      EESC opinion: European Philanthropy: an untapped potential (Exploratory opinion at the request of the Romanian Presidency)
    • Hälso- och sjukvården måste sätta människan i centrum och ses som en social investering, inte som en ”kostnad”. Det var slutsatsen från den konferens som Gruppen för civilsamhällesorganisationer i Europeiska ekonomiska och sociala kommittén (EESK) anordnade i Europahuset i Stockholm den 25 maj 2023. För att åstadkomma detta krävs en förändring av sociala, ekonomiska och politiska tänkesätt. Med utgångspunkt i samarbetet under covid-19-pandemin måste EU:s medlemsstater förena sina krafter för att bygga upp motståndskraftiga och hållbara hälso- och sjukvårdssystem som inte lämnar någon utanför och där man värdesätter det arbete som utförs av vård- och omsorgspersonal, civilsamhällesorganisationer och frivilligarbetare.
