EC praises government’s reform measures

The European Commission has praised the government’s reform measures in a list of recommendations for the Czech Republic. The recommendations, which the Commission sent to Prague in response to the government’s convergence and national reform policy, state that the government is “on the right course” in resolving economic issues. Prime Minister Nečas, who presented the information on Wednesday, said the recommendations put emphasis on the same priorities as the government, namely fiscal discipline, cost-saving budgets, decreasing the deficit in public finances and maintaining and developing competitiveness.
