A reform agenda for Europe's future

The European Union is facing enormous challenges after the European elections. Millions unemployed, increasing migration levels, tough global competition and measures to overcome the crisis are coupled with a loss of trust in the ability of politics to deliver solutions.

The EPP Group in the European Parliament and its governments have led the reforms allowing the European Union to overcome the immediate crisis. We now want to equip the EU with a successful reform agenda for Europe's future, to enable it to meet the challenges ahead by improving Europe's competitiveness for more growth and jobs as well as regaining the trust of its citizens.

These are our priorities for this 5-year legislative term.
