On 19 October 2020, the European Commission (EC) adopted its 2021 Work Programme, designed to make Europe healthier, fairer and more prosperous, while accelerating its long-term transformation into a greener economy, fit for the digital age. The EC aims at continuing to put all its efforts into managing the crisis, and into making Europe’s economies and societies more resilient. According to the EC, this Work Programme contains new legislative initiatives across all six headline ambitions of EC President von der Leyen’s Political Guidelines, following her first State of the Union Speech.
The EC is now planning to start institutional discussions with both the European Parliament and Council to establish a list of joint priorities on which co-legislators agree to take swift action.
