The G8 summit in Deauville, 26-27 May 2011

The two-day summit of the G8 leaders starts in the French town of Deauville. The main topic will definitely be the Arab Spring. The leaders of the 8 most developed industrial nations in the world will try to find a way to help politically and economically the countries in North Africa and the Middle East, fighting for democracy. Another important issue will be nuclear safety in the context of the accident in the Japanese nuclear power station Fukushima, as well as climate change. Although it is not included in the official agenda of the summit, the issue of a new managing director of the IMF will probably dominate the forum and the bilateral meetings. The European Union will probably look for support for its candidate for the position - French Finance Minister Christine Lagarde. euinside's team will follow the event and will inform you about the debates and the decisions.

The #Eurogroup finance ministers are gathering today for their regular meeting with a main issue on the agenda the 2nd review of the 3rd bailout programme for #Greece. There is another issue hanging in the air, which is not on the agenda - will the Dutch Finance Minister Jeroen Dijsselbloem remain on the position as chair of the Eurogroup since his party sustained huge losses at the parliamentary elections in the Netherlands last week. For now, a Tusk-effect is not visible but all minsters praise Dijsslbloem as a brilliant chief of the Eurogroup. Everyone, however, refuse to forecast whether he will stay even after his mandate runs out in January. EU economic affairs commissioner Pierre Moscovici hinted something in that direction saying that Mr Dijsselbloem is very competent and is very well aware of the Greek dossier. This is a hint that the next is yet to get acquainted with this dossier and there might not be sufficient time for that

#EUCO The leaders of the member states are gathering today in Brussels for their spring EU summit. The issues on the agenda vary from economic, including welcoming the Commission's intentions to address the differentiated quality of foodstuff in the internal market, to external affairs and migration. Another important issue on the agenda is the situation in the Western Balkans. The leaders are expected to reaffirm the European perspective of the six. After the negotiations on establishing a European Public Prosecutor's Office have failed, the issue has landed on the leaders' agenda. In the draft conclusions they support going for an enhanced cooperation procedure which allows those member states who want to to continue with the establishment of EPPO. Last but not least on the agenda is the re-election of Donald Tusk ad European Council president. He enjoys the support of most member states but Poland has fiercely opposed his re-election
