We have sought to align our priorities with the European Commission’s Legislative and Work Programme and the Europe 2020 Strategy, which provide a strategic framework to help shape and focus our approach.
The 2014-15 Statement of European Priorities details strategic, cross-cutting objectives to focus our European engagement for the year ahead. It contains a vision for better engaging with Europe supported by three strategic aims: to promote our interests; raise our positive profile in Europe; and encourage greater participation in European matters.
The European Priorities were developed with reference to the Balanced Scorecard methodology to provide a ‘balanced’ set of vital objectives navigating the Executive to success in Europe.
