The Juncker Commission's ten priorities

Prior to his election as President of the European Commission in July 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker had set out the policy priorities which would serve as the political mandate for his five-year term in office. With the stated aim of focusing on the ‘big things’, he outlined the following ten key areas in which he wanted the EU to make a difference and deliver concrete results for citizens.
1. A new boost for jobs, growth and investment
2. A connected digital single market
3. A resilient energy union with a forward-looking climate change policy
4. A deeper and fairer internal market with a strengthened industrial base
5. A deeper and fairer Economic and Monetary Union (EMU)
6. A reasonable and balanced free trade agreement with the United States
7. An area of justice and fundamental rights based on mutual trust
8. Towards a new policy on migration
9. Europe as a stronger global actor
10. A union of democratic change.
