When EU leaders meet for the summit on 13-14 December in Brussels, economic and financial issues and foreign policy will be on the agenda. "The main purpose of this meeting will be for us to discuss a specific and timebound roadmap for the completion of the Economic and Monetary Union (EMU)", said President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy in his invitation letter to the EU's Heads of State and Government. "It is indeed crucial that, in order to boost confidence in the long term viability of the EMU, we set out the milestones that will ensure we close the gaps in the EMU architecture which were revealed by the crisis." Under foreign policy, the European Council is due to focus on the Common Security and Defence Policy and EU enlargement.
