Our guest of the week is Astrid Lulling, a member of the European Parliament from Luxembourg. She has been part of the Agriculture Committee since 1965, and has followed the Common Agricultural Policy since its birth. In this video, she reacts to Mr Valentin Zahrnt's ideas (last week's video).

The European Union's spot carbon market reopened on Friday (4 February) after cyber attacks had forced a closure lasting more than two weeks, but was quiet as some traders expected further thefts of emissions permits.

At the European Summit on February 4, European leaders conceded that energy efficiency targets for 2020 is not on track. To meet the schedule, they demand more investment in energy infrastructure. Until 2014, they want to establish a fully functioning, interconnected and integrated internal energy market in the EU, so as to allow gas and electricity to flow freely.
