Samaras in Strasbourg for launch of EU high level group
Prime Minister Antonis Samaras was traveling to Strasbourg on Tuesday for the launch of the European Union’s High Level Group on Own Resources.
In his capacity as the Council’s rotating President, Samaras was expected to join European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso, European Parliament president Martin Schultz and the new high level group’s Chairman, Mario Monti, in a joint press conference later in the day. The new group is expected to examine how the EU should be financed in the future.
