17 views

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, participated in the Tripartite Social Summit. Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, and Demetris Christofias, President of Cyprus and President in office of the Council of the EU, were also present.
During the press conference José Manuel Barroso empathised with those in Europe that were hardest hit by the crisis and urged the European Council of 18-19/10/2012 to accelerate growth-enhancing measures under the Compact for Growth and Jobs. He added that this would require increased efforts from Member States to take decisive and immediate action.
José Manuel Barroso also said that he was not happy with the progress made so far. For him it was necessary to balance the important efforts made in terms of sound public finances with the right measures to have growth enhancing policies.
