Political agreement to reinforce Frontex

Wednesday, 22 June, 2011

Commissioner Cecilia Malmström welcomes the political agreement reached between the negotiators of the European Parliament, the Council and the Commission on the proposal to amend the Frontex Regulation. Once formally adopted the European Agency for the Management of Operational Cooperation at the External Borders (FRONTEX) will have a stronger mandate to better and more effectively protect the European Union's external borders.
