José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, received Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the European Central Bank, for a working lunch, just some hours before the meeting of the Eurogroup that gathers Ministers for Finance from the 15 countries of the Euro area. The Eurogroup meeting would be marked by growing inflation and slowing economic growth. And Ministers would ask France to increase efforts to cut its budget deficit, in line with EU rules.
