The impact of the economic crisis was a fairly strong one, pointing the deficiencies of the European economy and not only, and all the achieved progress has been mostly lost: European GDP has decreased, the industrial production in Europe dropped to 1990 levels and over 10% of total EU active population does not have a job. The financial and economic crisis has already forced the Commission to propose measures to improve the economic governance of the Union. The Europe 2020 strategy is a continuation of the European Union's treaties and strategies used to participate in the exit from the economic and financial crisis. This is a strategy for 10 years (2010-2020) having as goal the creation of a smart and sustainable economy, favorable to inclusion, with a raised level of employment and social cohesion and better living conditions for citizens. The strategy is implemented in the Member States through the National Reform Programmes (NRPs). Romania has set up targets for meeting the objectives of the Europe 2020 strategy and has established measures, lines of action, budgets and institutions to achieve objectives.
