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. These CSRs address both economic and social issues facing each individual Member State in the previous year that need to be improved in the coming year. 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.
