On his arrival at the December 2014 EU Summit, French President Francois Hollande said that France’s priority is “growth.”
“Nothing can make us deviate from this objective, this applies to the interpretation of our own budget, which will respect the rules but with maximum flexibility,” Hollande added.
EU leaders are meeting in Brussels on Thursday and Friday to reach an agreement on the new climate and energy policy framework for 2030. The last EU Summit chaired by Herman Van Rompuy will also look at the state of the European economy and address some foreign policy issues. Ebola is also on the official agenda.
