This afternoon the EESC’s ‘enlarged enlarged’ Presidency (the President, Vice-Presidents, Group Presidents , Section Presidents and the Secretary General) met to discuss and agree on a series of internal matters, from Section priorities to input into the Commission’s 2013 work programme, to a set of own-initiative opinions, to budgetary issues and the EESC’s input into the European Year of Citizens. It was a very full afternoon’s work and, satisfyingly, a very productive meeting.
