Ârlietu Ministrija : State Secretary Andris Teikmanis to take part in General Affairs Council meeting in Brussels

07/21/2012 | 01:34am US/Eastern

20 Jul 2012

On 24 July, State Secretary Andris Teikmanis will participate in a meeting of the General Affairs Council of the European Union (EU) that will take place in Brussels.

The agenda includes three topics: the EU multiannual financial framework for the 2014-2020 period, the results of the European Council meeting of 28-29 June and a presentation of the Cyprus presidency work programme.

During the meeting, the Cyprus presidency will provide information on bilateral consultations with member states that were held in order to discuss the process of negotiations concerning the EU multiannual financial framework and to learn the member state priorities. The European Commission will present a technically revised proposal for the EU multiannual financial framework that contains the latest macroeconomic data for the calculation of the allocations of the cohesion policy funding. At the Council, Latvia will maintain its position on conditions, which would ensure the cohesion policy funding for Latvia at least in the amount of the 2007-2013 period, as well as ensure a more rapid levelling-off of direct payments in the framework of the Common Agricultural Policy.

At the General Affairs Council, it is also planned to discuss the results of the European Council of 28-29 June. This part will focus on three issues: situation in the Euro area states, which are experiencing difficulties, and immediate measures for the stabilisation of the situation, the measures for stimulating growth in Europe to be put in place in the mid-term at national and EU level and a closer integration of the Economic and Monetary Union.

During the General Affairs Council, Cyprus will present its presidency work programme "Towards a Better Europe". The Cyprus EU presidency has defined four priorities: an efficient and sustainable Europe, a growth-based and better administered Europe, a Europe, which is closer to its citizens and ensures social cohesion, and a Europe that is closer to its neighbours and the world.

The General Affairs Council meetings are held once a month and in the second half of 2012, they are chaired by the Cyprus Presidency.
