EU Sources - Economic and social challenges according to the EC - February 29, 2016

The European Commission published its annual analysis of the economic and social challenges in the EU Member States, the Country Reports. The reports are a policy coordination tool under the so-called European Semester to monitor policy reforms and to point early on to challenges that Member States should address.
