November 21, 2002

Brussels, 20 Nov 2002

Investment in human resources and technology will feature prominently in the Commission's spring report next year, Commission President Romano Prodi said on 20 November.

Mr Prodi made the announcement when presenting the Commission's legislative work programme to the European Parliament in Strasbourg.

The Commission President reminded his audience that 2003 is the deadline for the completion of the internal market for risk capital and securities, which will have a positive impact on innovation.

'These reforms will pave the way for easier financing of innovation, on which sustained growth and job creation rests in our economies,' said Mr Prodi.

The Commission's other priorities for 2003 will be enlargement, stability and security and a sustainable and inclusive economy, announced Mr Prodi.
