SECOND EUROPEAN ECONOMIC RECOVERY PLAN IS NEEDED, THE ESC DEEMS

By the adoption of the Second European Economic Recovery Plan and the development of the national anti-crisis programmes there should be provided both increase in direct expenditure for the labour market policies and increase in investment, for which there is evidence for impact on employment.

This is the position of the Bulgarian Economic and Social Council as expressed in the analysis on Anti-crisis Measures on Labour Market - EU Member States' Experience. The analysis was adopted at the plenary session held on 26th February and was presented at a press conference held on 1st March.

The ESC's own-initiative analysis is a result of the one year's activity of the network of the Economic and Social Councils of the EU Member States, which in 2009 was chaired by the Bulgarian Economic and Social Council. This document contains a summary of the main practices, conclusions and recommendations regarding the anti-crisis measures on the labour market as presented by the national councils.

The adopted analysis contains the finding that the anti-crisis programmes implemented in the EU Member States are aimed at promoting business through various schemes for facilitated access to financial resources and co-financing by the relevant State, for reducing taxes and social security burden; along with that these programmes contain a substantial package of various measures directly related to employment and labour force.

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.
