Brussels Extraordinary European Council, 22-23/11/12

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and the Heads of State or Government of the EU met in Brussels for an Extraordinary European Council on the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) 2014-2020, hosted by Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council.
After two days of discussions the Members of the European Council concluded that more time was needed to broker a deal on the next budget. During the joint press conference José Manuel Barroso said that he understood each other's positions better. He added that from that point of view it was a real constructive debate. The President then emphasized that not only quantity, but also quality of the finished product was important and he explained the five benchmarks and one overriding goal for the EC, which was to modernise the budget so that it had an increase impact on creating growth and jobs.
For José Manuel Barroso these five quality benchmarks of the next budget were: a critical mass of pro-growth investment in infrastructure across Europe to make the single market work; guarantee that cohesion policy was in line with the economic and growth strategy and that it benefit European citizens and businesses across Europe; ensure that the budget continues to be a lever for continued reform of the common agriculture policy (CAP); show solidarity with those most affected by the crisis in Europe and maintain the commitments to the poorest in the world; and make financing of the European budget to be fairer, more transparent and simpler.
