Inaugural meeting of the Danish Presidency of the Council of the EU with the EC

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Danish Prime Minister and President in office of the Council of the EU, participated in the inaugural meeting of the Danish Presidency of the Council of the EU with the EC.
The programme was notably composed of a plenary meeting and different working sessions to discuss the implementation of the main priorities, such as financial stability and the creation of growth and jobs, for example through deepening the Single Market, green growth and energy efficiency.
José Manuel Barroso met Margrethe II, Queen of Denmark, and attended the opening of an exhibition on Europe's relations with the world entitled "Europe meets the world" in the National Museum of Denmark.
On the first day during the joint press conference José Manuel Barroso emphasised that Denmark could be a bridge between the euro area and non-euro area Members and praised the pragmatic approach and European commitment of Denmark.
At the end of the visit the President stressed that the Presidency and the EC fully agreed that fiscal discipline and sound public finances were indispensable for Europe. This discipline was indispensable but growth was also necessary. He underlined that the structural reforms boosting competitiveness and measures enhancing growth were as important as putting the public finances in order to restore confidence.
José Manuel Barroso also outlined that the EU's future Multiannual Financial Framework should be discussed also as a contribution for growth. He ended by praising the determination of the Danish Presidency saying that Denmark could be a bridge at European level and also a role model.
