Topolánek: Maintaining employment is one of EU’s key tasks

Ahead of the European Council summit in Brussels, Czech Prime Minister and Council President Mirek Topolánek met with delegates of EU employer associations and trade unions at the Tripartite Social Summit.

The Presidency was also represented by Czech Labour and Social Affairs Minister Petr Nečas. European Commission President José Manuel Barroso took part in the meeting as well.
 
The Czech PM pointed out that maintaining employment and creating new job opportunities at a time when we are hit by the financial and economic crisis is one of the key tasks of the European Union
 
Asked by the media whether the Czech Presidency is planning new direct financial stimuli, Mirek Topolánek said: “Some haven’t implemented their national recovery plans yet, and this is why we still don’t know what their impacts will be. It is therefore meaningless to start adopting any new rescue packages”.
 
The Czech Presidency has convened another extraordinary European Council meeting in May in order to assess the results of the national recovery plans and, above all, their influence on employment.
