Long-term sustainability of public finances in the European Union

— filed under: ,

In the coming decades, the size and age-structure of Europe's population will undergo dramatic demographic changes. Ageing populations will pose major economic, budgetary and social challenges. This report , adopted by the Commission on 12 October 2006, is the first one dedicated exclusively to the long-term sustainability of public finances. The analysis in the report concludes that on current policies the government debt in the EU will increase very significantly over the coming decades.
