Perception of EU action as adequate at present: percentage points difference between 2016 and 2018

Back in 2016, more Europeans evaluated the EU action on economic policy as insufficient (44 %) than adequate (35 %). In 2018, the proportion is changed – there are more Europeans who evaluate the EU action as adequate (40 %) than insufficient (38 %). There are very significant differences in the evaluation of EU action on economic policy amongst Member States. They vary between as high as 64 % in the Netherlands and 62 % in Austria to as low as 12 % in Greece (despite the fact that the share of Greeks evaluating EU action on economic policy positively has increased by four percentage points). The increase of the share of Europeans who evaluate the EU action as adequate is five percentage points. This trend is almost universal across the entire EU with the Member States with the most significantly improved evaluation being Hungary (19 percentage points) and Poland (16 percentage points). The only Member States in which fewer people evaluate the EU action on economic policy positively are Luxembourg (seven percentage point decrease) and the UK (four percentage point decrease).
