Orbán: Presidency accomplishes 98 % of its objectives

“We have accomplished 98 percent of what we had set as our objectives,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said, during his evaluation of the Hungarian Presidency’s performance in Brussels, at the 23-24 June 2011 meeting of the European Council. The heads of state and government of the EU have already made an economic decision in the first day of their meeting. The Hungarian Presidency took a large part in the EU’s fight against the economic crisis: for the first time, it has launched and managed the EU’s new economic coordination mechanism, the so-called European Semester; and concerning the matter of the package of six legislative proposals aimed at  reform of economic governance, it has brought a political agreement equally acceptable for the European Parliament (EP) and to Member States within reach. In the press conference, closing the first day of the Union summit, President of the European Council Herman Van Rompuy announced that the European semester has been closed. “We endorsed the recommendations of the Commission to the Member States, without -- and I insist -- without watering them down,” Mr Van Rompuy said.
