2 605 views

On 5 November 2014, Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the EC, gave a press statement after the first College meeting of the new Commission. He presented the new European Political Strategy Centre (EPSC), a revamped version of the former Bureau of European Policy Advisers. It will provide professional and targeted advice to the President and it will be organised around six teams (composed by up to six members): an Economic Team, a Social Affairs Team, a Sustainable Development Team, a Foreign Affairs Team, an Institutional Team and an Outreach and Communication Team. The head of the European Political Strategy Centre will be assisted by two deputies who are designated by the President. The College has also decided to extend the mandate of the Task Force for Greece until 30 June 2015. The Task Force was created on 12 October 2011 in view of coordinating the delivery of a comprehensive programme of technical assistance for Greece and to support the delivery of the Greek Economic Programme. The EU has collectively mobilised more than 900 million EUR in response to the Ebola crisis. EU Ebola Coordinator Stylianides and EU Commissioner for Health Andriukaitis will visit Sierra Leone, Liberia and Guinea from 12-16th November.
