José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received Anders Fogh Rasmussen, Danish Prime Minister, to talk about the global economic crisis and to analyse how is working the EU recovery plan. They also talked about the fight against global warming as Denmark is hosting the international climate conference in Copenhagen in December. In a press conference after the meeting, José Manuel Barroso said that the right cross border supervision could save jobs and prevent systemic failures in the future. He added that Europe should use its ambition as a platform to improve supervision at global level working with international partners. He explained also that no financial institution should escape regulation and supervision in the future. Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that Denmark considers the Commission as a guarantor of the Community rules in the EU and attach a strong importance to have a strong Commission. He added that under the leadership of José Manuel Barroso the European Commission has been and is a very strong Commission. He also rejected protectionism and said it would be the wrong answer to the current economic crisis. Here he considers the Commission as a guarantor.
