In his address to European business leaders, José Manuel Barroso said that a new economic governance, coupled with structural reforms and more intensive policy coordination, could stabilise the foundations of Europe's economy and internal cohesion. He expressed the hope that the system of governance and the country specific recommendations that the EC presented at the beginning of June 2011 was adopted by the Member States. The President added that he couldn't see in Europe one government that was not committed to structural reform.
On the occasion of this Summit, Viviane Reding also made a statement on the reform of the EU Data Protection Directive and the impact on businesses. Štefan Füle participated in the session entitled "Turkey: Building bridges for prosperity".
