EU Commission approves its working program for 2015

Program lays out guidelines but lacks details

Juncker (r.) and Vice-President Timmermans

The new EU Commission led by Jean-Claude Juncker adopted its working program for 2015 on Tuesday. The program lays out the main guidelines but remains very vague on concrete measures to achieve the goals. This makes it hard to determine if the EU Commission will really follow up on its promise to reduce legislative proposals.
