Extracts from the joint press briefing by José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Spanish Prime Minister, and by José Manuel Barroso

4 views

On 28 April, José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero, Spanish Prime Minister, paid a visit to José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, who had invited him to attend the meeting of the College of Commissioners. The presidency of the Council of the European Union, which will be passed on to Spain for the first half of 2010, was the main focus of discussion. In this regard, he stated that it was a privilege for the EC to be able to work with Spain, underlining its compromising position with regard to Europe. In a joint press briefing held following the meeting José Manuel Barroso explained that "European institutions need this momentum and support. It is essential to explain to our citizens that Europe is the solution to the crisis". In order to define globalisation instead of being subjected to it, he also stressed Spain’s important role at international level, and insisted that Europe should follow the example of measures taken by the College today concerning hedge funds and private equity funds.
