The original Lisbon strategy terminates in 2010 and its outcomes are mixed. Most of its objectives were not accomplished. However, both the Commission and Member states’ representatives agree that the strategy was beneficial to EU economies and that in the coming years it should continue in some form. Different Council formations have already expressed their views on how the strategy should be reformed. The Commission launched in November 2009 a special website, presenting Commissions latest document on this subject, called Consultation on the future EU 2020 strategy. This paper was available for public consultations until January 15, 2010.
