German term or phrase: unter das Oberziel stellen
"Angesichts der beträchtlichen wirtschaftlichen und demographischen Herausforderungen hat sich Mecklenburg-Vorpommern entschieden, seine Anstrengungen unter das Oberziel zu stellen, die Wirtschaftskraft des Landes zu steigern und durch nachhaltiges Wirtschaftswachstum Arbeitsplätze zu schaff en und dauerhaft zu sichern."
