EC annual analysis of the economic and social challenges in the EU Member States (Danube Region related countries)
The EC published its annual analysis of the economic and social challenges in the EU Member States, the Country Reports.
In February 2016, the Commission (EC) published a series of Country Reports for each Member State*, analysing Member States' economic and social policies. The reports are a tool under the streamlined European Semester of economic policy coordination to monitor policy reforms and to point early on to challenges that Member States should address.
The main messages of the Country Reports are summarised in a Communication . For 18 Member States identified in November 2015, the Country Reports include in-depth reviews examining the existence and nature of possible macroeconomic imbalances.
In May 2016, based on the analysis presented in the Country Reports and the dialogue held with Member States, the Commission will present country-specific recommendations.
As the part of the European Semester, the Commission also monitors the compliance with the Stability and Growth Pact.
