January 24, 2012

Jan. 24 (Bloomberg) -- European Commission President Jose Barroso said the region’s leaders should discuss ways to foster economic growth at a summit on Jan. 30.

The heads of state and government should investigate “concrete measures to stimulate growth and employment,” Barroso told reporters today in Brussels. “Only an agenda based on growth and jobs can create the conditions necessary for hope in the future of Europe and also a better life for all our citizens,” he said.

“It is now that we must front-load growth-enhancing structural reforms and invest in innovation to guide our economies toward new sources of growth and social cohesion,” Barroso said.
