Letter of European Commission President Barroso and European Council President Van Rompuy on the key issues of the G20 summit
"European Commission President José Manuel Barroso and European Council President Herman Van Rompuy have sent a letter to the other members of the European Council in order to share their views on the key issues of the G20 summit in Cannes on 3-4 November 2011. They express their hope that these orientations will serve as a good basis for our preparatory exchange of views at the European Council meeting on 23 October. They call for a "renewed collective G20 spirit" and stress that "the fact that France holds the G20 Presidency this year gives Europe a special responsibility. We need to make the Cannes Summit a G20 Summit that restores confidence, supports sustainable growth and job creation, and maintains financial stability".)..."
