A year for a new impetus and greater solidarity in Europe

The President of the European Economic and Social Committee, Georges Dassis, met today with the First Vice-President of the European Commission, Frans Timmermans, to deliver the EESC contribution to the Commission's 2017 Work Programme.


Participants in the discussion with the president of the CoR, Markku Markkula, agreed that the agendas of the European Committee of the Regions and the European Economic and Social Committee were often aligned and that both advisory bodies should step up their cooperation in order to benefit from these synergies.


The President of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC), Georges Dassis, will be a guest at the Luci sul lavoro (Spotlight on work) festival in Montepulciano, where he will meet with the Italian Minister for Labour and Social Policy, Giuliano Poletti (Thursday 7 July), and take part in the workshop on Economic governance of the European Union and strengthening the social pillar: how to combine stability, growth and jobs (Friday 8 July at 10.30 a.m.).
