When the Juncker Commission took office in 2014, Europe had been weakened by the worst economic and social crisis since the Second World War. The Juncker Commission has worked tirelessly to make Europe more social, more united, more relatable to its citizens, and more influential on the world stage.

From bringing back jobs, growth and investment after the crisis to strengthening both solidarity and responsibility in our Union, to securing the same pay for workers doing the same work in the same place, we have acted where it counts the most.

Here is a summary of the five years of President Juncker’s mandate in 11 quotes.
