Liberal & Democrat strategic priorities for new Commission

Addressing journalists, ALDE group leader, Guy Verhofstadt, presented the strategic priorities of the Liberals and Democrats for the incoming members of the European Commission who face a series of hearings in January before being approved. "We need more ambition and a more efficient Union," said Verhofstadt. "The next five years will be critical and the current economic and environmental situation requires a fundamental rethink of how we structure our economy and our society." The ALDE group believes the EU should focus its efforts on five broad priorities:
1. tackling the economic and financial crisis,
2. tackling climate change,
3. fighting for freedom and fundamental rights,
4. rethinking the EU budget and system of own resources
5. promoting a coherent strategy in foreign affairs.
