    Remarks to the ECON Committee of the European Parliament for the launch of the Economic Surveys of the European Union and the Euro Area

    After years of crisis, the European economy has picked up momentum. EU-wide unemployment, at 7.1%, is below its pre-crisis level and we project economic growth to remain above 2% this year and next. The ongoing recovery is one reason why support for the Union has rebounded. Two thirds of Europeans polled by Eurobarometer in April believed that their country had benefitted from EU membership, the highest percentage in 35 years.
