The report is part of Iceland’s accession process to the European Union and sets out Iceland’s main economic priorities until 2014 in four main chapters, as stated in a press release issued yesterday.

The first chapter sets out the main policy priorities, while the second chapter explains the macroeconomic outlook and economic policy going forward.

The third chapter deals with government finances and the government’s medium-term fiscal program and the fourth chapter is on recently-adopted and foreseen structural changes in main policy areas.
