In December 2006, the European Council stressed the need to combine the efforts against illegal migration with concrete proposals for incorporating legal migration opportunities into the Union's external policies, in order to develop a balanced partnership with third countries adapted to specific EU Member States' labour market needs. It also called for the Commission to present concrete proposals on this issue.
