A new strategic agenda for the EU 2019-2024 (future of work, economy, artificial intelligence…)

At its meeting in Brussels on 20 June 2019, the European Council agreed on an agenda for the EU for the next five years. ‘A new strategic agenda 2019-2024’ sets out the priority areas that will steer the work of the European Council and provide guidance for the work programmes of other EU institutions.

The strategic agenda focuses on four main priorities:

– protecting citizens and freedoms
– developing a strong and vibrant economic base
– building a climate-neutral, green, fair and social Europe
– promoting European interests and values on the global stage

It also sets out how to achieve those objectives.

The European model for the future
Europe’s competitiveness, prosperity, jobs and role on the global stage all depend on a strong economic base. In this field, the European Council is focusing on:

– deepening the Economic and Monetary Union
– completing the banking and capital markets union
– strengthening the international role of the euro
– strengthening cohesion in the EU
– working on all aspects of the digital revolution and artificial intelligence: infrastructure, connectivity, services, data, regulation and investment
– reducing the fragmentation of European research, development and innovation activities
– ensuring fair competition within the EU and on the global stage
