Recovery plan for growth & jobs

Finance2.jpg

In the current context of rising unemployment and sluggish growth prospects, the PES is calling for a strong investment policy. Only if we manage to tackle unemployment and generate growth, will we be able to achieve fiscal consolidation. This is why we oppose to the conservatives’ exit strategy, and propose instead an entry strategy into the labour market.

Recovery must also be linked to a long term strategy for Europe. We need to come out of the crisis stronger than we entered it. The PES has been a strong advocate for using investment measures to stimulate economic growth since the beginning of the crisis. In order to effectively help our economies grow and foster new jobs, the PES believes that adequate funds should be channeled for pursuing productive public and private investments. The European Investment Plan has been a PES demand for long, and now it needs to be steered with a comprehensive social dimension, fostering the creation of fair jobs and relaunching economic growth.
