115 views

On 3 October 2012, José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received the visit of Enda Kenny, Irish Prime Minister (Taoiseach), at the European Commission in Brussels. Following their meeting, they held a press briefing and talked about the organisation of the next Presidency of the Council of the European Union which will be held by Ireland for six month from January 1st on. The discussions covered the issues that are likely to feature prominently on the EU agenda during the Irish presidency, among them banking union, the EU's budget for 2014-2020, the development of the Single Market, trade relations, the Digital Agenda, and reform of the Common Agricultural and Common Fisheries Policies. The Irish Government will underline the need for stability in the Eurozone as a pre-requisite to advancing policies that can contribute most to European growth and jobs. The European response to the ongoing challenges in the euro area, as well as Ireland's recovery are also expected to be analysed in some depth. The Irish Presidency begins on 1st January 2013, coinciding with the 40th anniversary of Ireland's accession to the European Union.
