“We have a duty to learn the lessons of the crisis and to focus on the creation of growth and jobs. At the top of the agenda are the need to build a strong economy and not use fiscal or monetary stimulus to live beyond our means. We must look at the reforms needed to correct these imbalances so as to create growth and jobs for the future. Growth is key and we must use all instruments available to promote growth and in the European Union we have some instruments from the agenda 2020 to the single market act to promote sustainable growth.”
