16 November 2012

Meeting between Commissioner Andor and Governor WenzelPARIS - Today, the Governor received Mr László Andor, Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion.

Commissioner Andor and Governor Wenzel explored ideas for enhanced cooperation between the European Commission and the CEB and underlined the clear alignment of the two Institutions’ social objectives. The two institutions had in particular been working closely in the past two years to address social degradation in EU Member States.

This meeting was the occasion to discuss the important issue of Roma inclusion. The European Commission and the CEB, both very active in this field, could benefit from each other experience.  

They also stressed the importance to address unemployment in the region, including via support to micro, small and medium-size enterprises.
