Press conference by Margot Wallström, Vice-President of the EC, on the Plan D (Democracy, Dialogue, Debate)
Margot Wallström, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Institutional Relations and Communication Strategy gave a press conference on the Plan D (Democracy, Dialogue, Debate). Governments must steer these national debates forward, but the Commission has a key role in facilitating the process. The Commission's "Plan D" - Democracy, Dialogue and Debate - puts in place a framework, through national governments, for a 25 country debate on Europe's future. The clear objective is to build a new political consensus about the right policies to equip Europe to meet the challenges of the 21st Century.
