The European Commission adopted the 2013 Annual Growth Survey (AGS), setting out five priorities designed to guide Member States through the crisis to renewed growth: pursuing differentiated, growth-friendly fiscal consolidation; restoring normal lending to the economy; promoting growth and competitiveness for today and tomorrow; tackling unemployment and the social consequences of the crisis; and modernising public administration.

This strategy builds on what has been achieved and the lessons learned, the goal being to boost growth and jobs. The first priority must be to hasten the exit from the crisis, but the strategy must also provide the building blocks for growth that will be sustainable in the future.
The strategy should ensure that Europe’s high quality of life, underpinned by its unique social model, is sustained and further enhanced. Employment, productivity and social cohesion should also be strengthened.
This page brings together links to progress reports on the Europe 2020 strategy and its targets, as well as background information and documents.
The initiatives are meant to boost a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
