AGE publishes questions to candidate Commissioners

With the upcoming hearings of the candidate Commissioners, we are at a key moment to make sure that the EU addresses the challenges posed by the ageing of the population. To do so, we need clear commitments from the future College of Commissioners. AGE has therefore drafted a series of recommendations and questions to the candidate Commissioners, which are dealing with a broad range of issues of concern for older Europeans, e.g. fundamental rights, economic reforms, social protection systems, transport, tourism, consumers' protection, accessibility, health, research.

AGE recommendations and questions have been grouped according to EP Committees' competences:

We hope that the candidate Commissioners will take position on the challenges AGE is raising during the hearings at the European Parliament in September.
