Reform Commission will focus on growth and jobs
“The new European Commission is clearly oriented towards reforms, jobs and growth. Its structure and organisation will be more political and more efficient to meet the challenges ahead and to deliver. This is a good proposal by Commission President-elect Jean-Claude Juncker”, said Manfred Weber MEP, Chairman of the EPP Group in the European Parliament.
“With this high-level team, Europe will be in good hands. The new Commissioners are experienced politicians, not bureaucrats. We are glad that with 14 Commissioners with important portfolios, the EPP political family is at the core of the European Commission’s agenda of reforms towards growth and jobs. The European Commission will focus on what is most important and reduce bureaucracy and red tape. This is what our voters expect from us."
“I would like to particularly congratulate our colleagues from the EPP Group, MEPs Marianne Thyssen, Valdis Dombrovskis, Miguel Arias Cañete and Christos Stylianides, on their nominations with such crucial portfolios”, Weber continued.
“The EPP Group will play its role in the upcoming hearings and we will examine the competence of the Commissioners-designate very thoroughly. We will do everything to avoid any delay in the entry-into-function of the new Commission. The European Institutions need to get back to work and start delivering", the Chairman concluded.
