Abstract: This paper aims to prove that an essential step for reaching the targets of the European Commission’s 2020 Strategy for the EU to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy lies with the reform and integration of the governance at the level of the Union and especially the administration of its member states and the increasing democratization of EU institutions. It is only through administrative harmonization that economic cohesion can be assured. Specifically, the Union should extend member state reporting to areas of public administration, focusing on the efficiency and legality of its actions. Monitoring, akin to the mechanism for cooperation and verification of progress in Bulgaria and Romania to address specific benchmarks in the areas of judicial reform and the fight against corruption should be implemented with regard to all member states to ensure the good functioning of government with regard to implementing the steps of the 2020 strategy.
