Growth, state aid and Eurobonds

On 23 February, the president of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) Staffan Nilsson welcomed the vice-president of the European Commission responsible for competition policy Joaquín Almunia to the EESC's 478th plenary session. Mr Almunia expressed his gratitude for the opportunity to present the Commission's project for modernising state aid control to civil society representatives who work in Brussels to defend the interests of 500 million citizens across the EU. EESC members also adopted an opinion on growth and sovereign debt in the EU, with concrete proposals on Eurobonds and Union bonds that could not come at a more opportune moment.
