The EU Heads of State or Government gathered in Brussels on 22 May 2013 for a one-day meeting to discuss energy policy and taxation with the objective of fostering growth, jobs and competitiveness in Europe. José Manuel Barroso, President of the European Commission, made a presentation on the energy situation in the European Union and called for swift implementation of a number of proposals on the table. He also set out the Commission's thinking on tax fraud and evasion, particularly calling for an ambitious European approach. Leaders discussed effective ways to combat tax fraud and tax evasion and to tackle aggressive tax planning, such as automatic exchange of information, taxation of savings interest and measures to counter VAT fraud.
