European Council January 2012

On January 30 the first for 2012 European Council will take place. The European Union member states' leaders will discuss two major issues. The first is finalising the text of the Treaty for Stability, Coordination and Governance of the Economic and Monetary Union, more popular as fiscal pact, which was agreed at the December summit. The second issue is the measures for economic growth and increasing Europe's competitiveness against the backdrop of dim forecasts for a continuous recession. The summit is again taking place under the strong pressure of the markets, after Standard & Poor's credit rating agency downgraded 9 member states, including the temporary rescue fund EFSF, which helps the financing of countries in a bailout regime. Separately, a strong influence on the summit are expected to exercise the growing more difficult negotiations with the private creditors of Greece. euinside will again follow for you the summit and will inform you in this subject about the leaders' decisions, the comments and the reactions.

#EUCO This afternoon, in Brussels, will begin the last EU summit this year. It will be the first that will work on Donald Tusk's Leaders' Agenda (details in the link below). In his agenda two topics are planned for the December European Council - migration and the future of the EMU. Both have already created strong tensions between Tusk and the Commission after the European Council president came up with documents of his own, which are much more reduced than those of the Commission, and reactions in the building across the street were furious. The leaders will mark the launch by 25 member states of PESCO at a special ceremony today. Leaders will be joined by NATO secretary general to discuss EU-NATO cooperation. Leaders are also expected to extend sanctions against Russia after hearing a report by Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron on the implementation of the Minsk agreements. Progress on the Brexit negotiations will be discussed on Friday. This is one of the toxic issues on the agenda. On Friday will take place also the expanded euro area summit, which is open for non-euro countries as well. Stay tuned for details and live updates throughout the day and tomorrow! euinsi.de/0Dcy
