Hat: Commission 2021's new work program is published

Amorce:

Each year the European Commission adopts a work programme, in addition to its ongoing work, with a list of measures that it will take in the following 12 months. It is a way of informing the public and the co-legislators of the political commitments Europe is making. This year, the Commission’s Work Programme for 2021 is particularly linked to the Recovery Plan for Europe.

Text:

On the agenda are new legislative initiatives around the six political priorities of Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission :

– The Commission is planning a review of the relevant climate and energy legislation with the aim of achieving a 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030.

– An ambitious action plan will be put in place in particular to ensure economic recovery, social equity of the digital and ecological transitions.

– Europe will remain focused on the right to privacy and connectivity, freedom of expression, free flow of data and cybersecurity. A new European digital identity will also be developed to facilitate access to online services across Europe.

– In particular, the program plans to create an advanced research and development agency for biomedical research, which would be responsible for the security of the supply of medicines for the Union.

– In 2021, the European Commission wants to continue to put its values, defined in Article 2 TEU, at the center of its international positioning.

– In particular, the Commission will propose two new strategies: a European strategy for the rights of persons with disabilities with the aim of implementing the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, and a European strategy on the rights of the child.
