Denmark's Convergence Programme 2009

18-05-2010

Today Denmark has submitted its Convergence Programme 2009 to the EU. The Convergence Programme is prepared in accordance with the provisions of the EU’s Stability and Growth Pact.

The Convergence Programme takes stock of the 2015 Plan and the outlook for public finances in light of the global crisis and the economic policy measures that have been decided since Convergence Programme 2008.

Moreover, the Convergence Programme illustrates the policy requirements in order to meet the targets in the 2015 Plan and an expected recommendation from the EU Council of Ministers of bringing the fiscal deficit below 3 per cent of GDP by no later than 2013.
