Brussels Forum 2010: extracts from the keynote address by José Manuel Barroso, on a new atlanticism for the 21st century
On 26/03/2010, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, delivered a keynote speech on the occasion of the 2010 Brussels Forum, on a new atlanticism for the 21st century.
With new leadership in the United States and a recently appointed European Commission, led for the second time by José Manuel Barroso, leaders on both sides of the Atlantic continued to deepen transatlantic cooperation on a vast array of distinctly new and global challenges, from the international financial crisis to climate change, and energy security to the retention of high-skilled workers. Yet there was no single transatlantic forum focused on this broad and increasingly complex global agenda.
Brussels Forum was an annual high-level meeting of the most influential North American and European political, corporate, and intellectual leaders, to address pressing challenges currently facing both sides of the Atlantic. SHOTLISTLINK
