The objectives of this study are twofold. First, it examines the synergies between the objectives of the AGS and EU budget contributions and measures aimed at enhancing economic growth. Second, the study assesses the impact of the guidance provided by the CSRs on national budgets with a view to supporting policies enhancing economic growth. In pursuing these two objectives, the study aims to contribute to a political assessment of the interactions and synergies between two European Semester tools (AGS and CSRs) and EU and national budgets.
