Visit of José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, to Greece
José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, went to Athens, where he participated in the 6th European Summit of Regions and Cities, jointly organised by the Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the Region of Attica. The event was entitled "European recovery: Local solutions". The objective of the Summit was to take stock of the efforts made at European, national, regional and local level to deliver job-rich recovery. It also brought a high-level debate with European political leaders about the 2014 European elections and the future of the EU. José Manuel Barroso then visited the Greek National Museum of Contemporary Art (EMST), under construction in the building of the FIX brewery factory. The Museum, co-financed by EU Funds, was expected to be inaugurated in March 2014.
