Tomorrow, Saturday, 9 May, is open doors day for all of the EU institutions, including the European Economic and Social Committee. Why not come and take a look? You can find out more on our website at here. I must say, from my point of view the week will be beginning and ending with the old Eastern Europe. On Monday evening I watched The Lives of Others. Tomorrow, I’ll be spending the day in the Committee in the company of a Trabant, or Trabi. I’m told our model has no less than three engines in it – all equally unreliable. Come and meet the Trabi, or our President, or our Vice-President, or little old me. We’ll all be here to welcome you.
