Today's European Council will, in the context of the EU's efforts to promote growth, jobs and competitiveness, discuss energy and taxation. On energy, it will address the EU's energy policy against the backdrop of pressure on Europe's competitiveness and increasing energy demand from major economies. Building on the policy priorities and actions it set in February 2011, it will focus on certain key aspects, particularly those in relation with the EU's growth and jobs agenda, and will seek to give guidance to the Council. On taxation, the European Council will focus on effective steps to fight tax evasion and tax fraud, as well as to tackle aggressive tax planning in order to protect revenues and enhance the effectiveness of tax systems. It is expected to call for rapid progress on a number of issues, including automatic exchange of information, taxation of savings interest and measures to counter VAT fraud.
