Job creation measures
Employment has been made an absolute priority under the revised Lisbon Strategy. This is reflected in the programming of the Community financial instruments for the period 2007-2013 (the Community Programme for Employment and Social Solidarity, the European Social Fund and the European Regional Development Fund). At the same time, the Commission is supporting the fight against unemployment and undeclared work through the modernisation of public employment services and the promotion of flexibility among employers and employees. It is encouraging differing policy approaches according to the key economic sectors, such as services, and categories of employees who could be better integrated into the labour market (e.g. women and older people). The Commission allows the Member States to use State aid and VAT reductions as instruments to foster employment.
