President: 'Today's European Council Is Historic and Strategic'
Friday, 24 October 2014
"Today's European Council is historic and strategic because we will approve the new European Commission, which will take office in time, with a clear bid in terms of priorities, efficiency and usefulness for each of the EU countries. It is strategic because we look ahead to 2030 and set a very ambitious programme of change in each of the states for the establishment of a more efficient economy, much clearer priorities in the energy sector and specific and measurable indicators," Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev told Bulgarian journalists in Brussels on Thursday. He arrived here for a two-day European Council that will be held with the participation of the EU heads of state and government.
