Adelina Marini Today's #Eurostat data are definitely a good news for Vice President Olli #Rehn who wrote a special post in his blog on the occasion. In it, he says the data are in support of the policy mix the European Commission had chosen aimed at building "a stability culture and pursuing structural reforms supportive of growth and jobs". The EU commissioner also paid a tribute to the role of the ECB. Olli Rehn begins his post with a quote from the famous English mountaineer Edward Whymper: "Do nothing in haste, look well to each step, and from the beginning think what may be the end". The post ends with a call these words to be remembered euinsi.de/GFv2

#EUCO The leaders of the member states are gathering today in Brussels for the spring European Council. They have quite a lot of issues on their plates. One of the most sensitive topics will be the EU's answer to the #Salisbury attack. Some member states, including European Council President Donald Tusk, want a stronger reaction against Russia whereas others are more cautious. In the context of Syria, the leaders will discuss relations with Turkey. A decision is expected on whether the EU-Turkey summit in Varna is to take place. Another tough topic is what answer the EU should plan to the US tariffs on steel and aluminium. As the tradition goes, the spring European Council is the time to check the European semester. In addition, there will be a summit of the euro area but this time it will not be open for non-euro countries. The leaders will also discuss yesterday's proposal by the Commission to tax the digital economy. The summit is also expected to adopt conclusions on the Western Balkans on the occasion of the May summit with the six countries. On the menu is also the issue of Brexit. After a transitional agreement has been agreed the leaders now have to outline the guidelines for the future relations with the UK
