work programme 2015

On the 16th December 2014, the European Commission adopted its much awaited Work Programme for 2015.  The work programme sets out the priority actions for the next 12 months that it believes will make a real difference for jobs, growth and investment for Europe’s citizens.  The Commission is the institution responsible for the general interest of the EU and is the only institution that can initiate EU legislation.

European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker, has staked a lot of credibility on an ambitious €315bn scheme to boost private investment in European infrastructure projects throughout Europe as part of the new Work programme.
