Selected changes in the 2019-24 Strategic Agenda compared to earlier drafts

Overall, the substance of the Strategic Agenda remains close to the outline prepared by Donald Tusk and the discussion at the informal meeting of EU-27 Heads of State or Government on 9 May 2019 in Sibiu. Yet, the final version saw some major additions to previous versions (see Figure 5). The biggest changes concern the third policy cluster – building a climate-neutral, green, fair and social Europe – where two concepts: 1) climate neutrality and 2) social (barely addressed at all previously) were added. More precise objectives were set on both aspects. Other noteworthy deletions or additions relate to defence and migration. Overall, the Strategic Agenda is more proactive and assertive, and less defensive than previous draft versions.
