Stanishev in open letter to Juncker and Thyssen: Youth should remain on the EU’s priority list

The PES deeply regrets the fact that the European Commission’s draft budget for 2017 does not include additional commitments for the Youth Employment Initiative. We count on the European Parliament and European Council to push for extra money for this important priority.

PES President Sergei Stanishev sent an open letter to President J.C Juncker and Commissioner M. Thyssen expressing PES concerns on the faith of the Youth Employment Initiative in Europe after the Commission’s draft EU budget 2017 was revealed.
