We still demand more flexibility and an intelligent use of the Stability and Growth Pact
We made it clear to Jean-Claude Juncker what Europe desperately needs: growth, investment and more social guarantees – as well as stability. Mr Juncker confirmed he will propose a member of the S&D family as candidate to be next Economic and Financial Affairs Commissioner and we found common ground on a European approach to immigration. Juncker’s commitments are welcome, but we still demand more economic flexibility and an intelligent use of the Stability and Growth Pact. The final decision on S&D support has yet to be taken.
