The Spring European Council will focus on the Lisbon Strategy for growth and jobs, better regulation and an integrated energy and climate policy.
The Heads of State and Government will agree on a European energy policy action plan and adopt ambitious goals to underline Europe's pioneering role in the field of global climate protection. Within the context of the Lisbon process they are expected to agree on measures and goals designed specifically to strengthen the Internal Market and international competitiveness as well as to promote employment and the further development of the European Social Model. Formulation of a clear objective to reduce unnecessary administrative costs will be an important component of their joint commitment to better regulation.
