Visit of Jerzy Buzek, President of the EP, to José Manuel Barroso
For the first time, on 8 December 2010, the College of the European Commission invited Jerzy Buzek, President of the European Parliament, for a working lunch in order to have an informal discussion on topical political issues, for instance the management of the financial crisis, the budget, the preparation of the financial perspective for the period beyond 2013.
During this mandate of the Commission, the Commission and the Parliament are going to reinforce their permanent dialogue. This will go on through all the term in office of this Commission on issues of European significance.
In October 2010, the College as a whole met all the Presidents of the EP committees. SHOTLIST
