Description

In accordance with the European Semester (ES), each year Country Specific Recommendations (CSRs) are published which outline a set of actions to be taken by each Member State.

Furthermore, these recommendations represent the Commission’s economic and social goals.  This document presents a list of countries and their respective CSRs related to the work of EASPD. It is important to read them in context with the preamble of each Country Specific Recommendation, as well as the Country Reports.
