THE BULGARIAN ECONOMIC AND SOCIAL COUNCIL HOSTS A MEETING ABOUT THE EUROPEAN ANTI-CRISIS EMPLOYMENT POLICY

The two days' international high level conference on JOBS AND CRISIS - POLICY RESPONSES FROM EUROPE takes place on 5th and 6th October 2009, venue: Sofia. The conference has been organised by the Bulgarian Economic and Social Council and the European Economic and Social Committee.

The international forum has been opened by Mrs. Tsetska Tsacheva, President of 41st National Assembly of Bulgaria.

The subject of the conference organised by the Bulgarian ESC and the EESC is the impact of the global economic crisis on jobs and the various measures at national and European levels in support of employment and labour market activation. The forum discusses the assessments of the national economic and social councils and the proposals of the European Economic and Social Committee and the European Commission. Particular attention is attached to the anti-crisis measures in Bulgaria.

The international conference is a part of the activation and integration of the civil society structures in Europe while seeking common pathways to overcome the effects of the crisis. The discussion of the issues tabled at the forum is a necessary step in the assessment of the efficiency of the common European anti-crisis policy.

Following the annual meeting of the national ESCs and EESC's Secretaries-General held in Sofia in June 2009, this conference becomes a key step towards the development and the subsequent implementation of a draft platform of a policy for anti-crisis measures all over Europe.

Representatives of the European Economic and Social Committee and the Bulgarian Economic and Social Council, the national economic and social councils of the EU Member States, the European Commission, the International Labour Organisation, State institutions, non-governmental organisations and of scientific units in Bulgaria take part in the conference.

MISSION

“THE CIVIL PARLIAMENT” OF BULGARIA

is the “bridge” between citizens and the national government. Its mission is to support such “bridging” so as to facilitate the communication between the society and the national government. It is the new and modern institution of the civil dialogue.

The ESC's mission is to promote civil society organisations access to and involvement in the process of decision-making on strategic economic and social issues.

The main goal of ESC's operation is to enable different representatives of organised civil society to feel free to state their views whereas unanimity on matters of common interest is encouraged. The Council expresses and protects civil society interests by communicating agreed statements and proposals submitted by its members to the executive and legislative authorities.
