Visit of a delegation of Chairs of the Committees of the EP to the EC
José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and several Members of the College of the Barroso II Commission received a delegation of Chairs of the Committees of the EP.
This annual meeting was an important stepping stone before the adoption of the Commission's 2013 work programme on 23/10/2012. It provided an opportunity for Chairs of the Committees to assess the implementation of the 2012 work programme and to signal their policy preferences and expectations for the following year.
The meeting took place halfway through six weeks of intensive "structured dialogue" that started with the speech on the "State of the Union 2012" in the EP on 12/09/2012.
