On 24 March 2010, the Members of the EC, took part at the Weekly meeting of the Barroso Commission, in Brussels. The European Commission assessed the stability and convergence programmes for ten member States: Slovenia, Luxembourg, Malta, Denmark, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, the Czech Republic, Poland and Romania. The EU executive is likely to warn about forecasts for growth and ask member states to provide greater details on how to bring their budgets into line. The European Commission proposed also a new regulation aiming to allow couples getting divorced to choose which EU country's laws apply to their divorce or separation. This can determine which parent will get custody rights for children and how joint property will be divided.
