Brief aan Yves Leterme uit CD&V-ledenblad Ampersand

Beste Yves,

 Ik heb het initiatief van een extra informele Europese Raad genomen. Deze zal op 11 februari in Brussel samenkomen. Het is toch evident dat de lidstaten van de Europese Unie er samen voor staan! Door de euro zijn 16 economieën zodanig verknoopt, dat het buitenland ook binnenland is. Wij moeten streven naar een verdubbeling van onze economische groei, zoniet komt ons stelsel van de sociale zekerheid in gevaar. Dat zijn zaken om op het hoogste politieke niveau, met alle regeringsleiders, te bespreken.

For the European Union, 2010 will be a year of renewal of its institutions and policies

For the European Union, 2010 will be a year of renewal of its institutions and policies, declares Herman Van Rompuy, the President of the European Council, in an exclusive interview for the website, www.consilium.europa.eu.

 

Mr President, what main challenges will the European Union face in the year 2010?

 

2010 will be a year of renewal. First and foremost, entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon will herald institutional renewal. Then there will be policy renewal, with a series of important milestones coming up, such as review of the Lisbon Strategy, growth for jobs, review of the financial perspective and our new social agenda. Lastly, we shall be under new leadership, with the EU's High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy taking office, a new European Commission settling in, and my own election as permanent President of the European Council.
