And so back to work: the management board on Monday morning, a long and enjoyable catch-up meeting with my President, Staffan Nilsson, on Tuesday morning, and a meeting of the so-called enlarged Presidency (President, Vice-Presidents, Group Presidents) today, and various other meetings dotted about those. At the political level, there are three Section meetings this week (Single Market, Production and Consumption yesterday; Employment, Social Affairs and Citizenship today; and Economic and Monetary Union and Economic and Social Cohesion tomorrow) and therefore many of the Committee’s members are back in the meeting rooms and corridors – just as it should be.
