EESC discusses migration and education with Commissioner for Promoting European Way of Life
At its July plenary session, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) hosted a debate with Commission Vice-President, Margaritis Schinas, who presented several upcoming initiatives falling under his portfolio of "Promoting our European Way of Life", including the New Pact on Migration and Asylum, the Skills Agenda, the EU for Health Programme and the new Security Union Strategy.
In his welcoming remarks to Commissioner Schinas, the EESC president, Luca Jahier, said:
The values of solidarity, equality and fairness, which your portfolio is based on, are the three elements at the very core of the EESC's endeavours. In its opinions, the EESC has already dealt with some of the topics covered by these long-awaited initiatives, and we will continue do to so.
