Visit of Lars Løkke Rasmussen, Danish Prime Minister, to José Manuel Barroso
Lars Løkke Rasmussen, newly-appointed Danish Prime Minister, paid his first visit to the EU headquarters on 13 May 2009 in Brussels and met José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC.
They talked about the European agenda for the coming months, as well as global challenges such as the way out of the economic crisis and the fight against climate change. Denmark will be holding a summit meeting later in 2009 on the issue.
Lars Løkke Rasmussen officially became Danish Prime Minister in April 2009, after Anders Fogh Rasmussen, former Prime Minister, was named new Secretary General of NATO. SHOTLIST
