european_commissionOn Wednesday 16th of November, the European Commission released its Annual Growth Survey (AGS) for the year 2017. The document, setting out the European Commission economic and social priorities for the year ahead, reflects the main visions in President Juncker’s 2016 State of the Union address, as well as the latest economic data from the Commission’s Autumn 2016 Forecast. Together with the Annual Growth Survey, the European Commission released the so called “Autumn package“, containing  a series of budgetary documents launching the 2017 European Semester Cycle.

The next issue of the Eurodiaconia European Semester Quarterly (to be published in December 2016) will focus on the 2017 AGS package. It will analyse the package, how does the AGS 2017 compares to the previous one, and to Eurodiaconia’s policy recommendations.
