IATE Term of the Week: Job-creating growth



8th January 2014 was the official opening of the Hellenic Presidency of the Council of the  European Union. This Presidency is the fifth Hellenic Presidency of the Council since Greece joined the then European Communities in 1981. One of the main principles of the Greek Presidency  is job creation. In a period when unemployment has reached unacceptably high rates in several EU Member States, the initiatives and actions for reversing the negative employment trends and for boosting job creation are absolutely necessary. For this reason we have chosen ‘job-creating growth‘ as our IATE Term of the Week. Find out more about this topic with this article and with the Programme of the Hellenic Presidency.


We invite you to suggest the equivalent terms in the missing EU languages, or alternatives to the existing term in your language if you consider the proposed term inaccurate. Provide your answer with a reliable reference and an accurate definition and/or context if possible.

A terminologist for the language in question will revise your answer and decide whether to validate them. Given the implications of the process, a delay is to be expected.
