José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, went to Copenhagen where he met with Helle Thorning-Schmidt, Danish Prime Minister and President in office of the Council of the EU. The President then participated in the plenary meeting of the 47th Conference of Parliamentary Committees for Union Affairs of Parliaments of the European Union (COSAC). He made a speech entitled "Releasing the full potential of the Single Market to deliver smart, sustainable and inclusive growth" on this occasion.
The President stressed that building partnership and ownership with National Parliaments was essential not only to drive forward the Single Market and make sure its benefits were actually delivered on the ground, but also to promote Europe's future growth and prosperity across the board.
