The 2922nd meeting of the Economic and Financial Affairs Council was held on 10 February 2009 in Brussels. The Council reviewed implementation of the European economic recovery plan approved in December 2008, with a view to an overall assessment by the European Council at its spring meeting (19 and 20 March 2009). It adopted a recommendation to the European Parliament on the discharge to be given to the Commission for implementation of the EU general budget for 2007. It adopted conclusions calling on the Commission to resume negotiation on an anti-fraud agreement with Liechtenstein, so as to obtain changes that ensure effective administrative assistance and access to information with regard to all forms of investment, in particular foundations and trusts. The Council adopted conclusions on the single euro payments area (SEPA). It also approved the establishment of a "European 112 Day" to promote awareness raising, the sharing of experience and networking activities as regards the use of 112 as a common telephone number to contact emergency services. Joaquín Almunia, Member of the EC in charge of Economic and Monetary Affairs, and Miroslav Kalousek, Czech Minister for Finance and President in office of the Council, held a joint press conference at the end of the Council meeting. They answered questions from journalists on the Council's decisions.
