Participation of László Andor, Member of the EC, at the Ninth Round Table on Poverty and Social Exclusion
László Andor, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, participated in the Ninth Round Table on Poverty and Social Exclusion, an event organised by the Belgian presidency of the Council in cooperation with the EC. For two days, participants discussed poverty and how it can be combated. The central theme was the recommendation for active inclusion, with the emphasis on the importance of a minimum income throughout the whole of the Union. The Round Table was followed by an informal meeting of European ministers with a mandate to tackle poverty.
