On 2 October 2012, the Presidents of the EP Parliamentary Committees, paid a visit to the EC College in Brussels.
The annual meeting is an important stepping stone before the adoption of the Commission's 2013 work programme.
Following the President's State of the Union address, the meeting is an important part of the "special Partnership" between the Commission and the European Parliament. It provides an opportunity for Committee Chairs to assess the implementation of the 2012 work programme and to signal their policy preferences and expectations for the coming year.
