The Government adopted the Report on the Implementation of the National Reform Program of the Czech Republic 2020

On 14 December 2020, the Government (EU Committee) adopted the Report on the Implementation of the National Reform Program of the Czech Republic 2020.

The document presents both an overview of implementation of long-term government reforms and the economic and social measures taken in response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Report is prepared on annual basis and describes the implementation of individual measures set by the Government in the National Reform Program in spring. The Report will now be provided to the European Commission as a contribution of the Government into the beneficial dialogue between the Czech Republic and the European Commission on the EU economic and social policies, which is called the European Semester.

The European Semester also served to monitor the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy, which has been the EU's main umbrella strategic document for the last decade. As is clear from the very name of the strategy, the planned time horizon of the strategy has been achieved. The objectives set out in the Europe 2020 strategy are also gradually being replaced by the objectives set out in new strategy papers, such as the European Green Deal. This Report therefore contains an analytical appendix with an overall view of the fulfilment of the national targets of the Czech Republic according to the Europe 2020 strategy during the past decade.

The Report was prepared by the Office of the Government – Section for European Affairs in a close cooperation with ministries and other central state administration bodies. As in previous years, the draft version of the Report was discussed with tripartite representatives, who had the opportunity to comment on the document.
