ECONOMY: BARROSO (EU), "YOUNG PEOPLE NEED WORK, NOT EMPTY WORDS"” “

(Sir Europe – Strasbourg) – "We are all on the same boat". José Manuel Barroso, president of the European Commission, speaks again of the economic and social situation of the EU and takes stock of the summit of 27th and 28th June from the floor of the European Parliament. "The crisis is not over – he states – and we cannot afford to relax our efforts for stability and growth". In this respect, he mentions that the European Council has taken decisions that can "deliver results" in the fight against youth unemployment and about credit to small- and medium-sized enterprises. "Today, we are launching an alliance on apprenticeship – the Lusitanian politician explains – which will tend to increase opportunities and improve the quality of training and internships"; "tomorrow, we will be in Berlin for the summit on employment, which will be focussed on young people". Because "young people do not need empty words, they need jobs". Barroso also speaks of "results towards a safer and more effective governance, which is not about imposing economic strategies on governments, but which is about agreeing upon and coordinating our economic and budget policies, in everyone’s interest".
