EU27 Bulletin 21-25 October

The IIEA’s EU27 Bulletin brings you the key developments from across the EU’s institutions on a weekly basis and looks at the forthcoming week’s major agenda items.

Our weekly bulletin includes:

  • Updates and analysis of institutional legislative proposals;
  • Examination of major policy speeches by EU leaders and senior institution officials; and
  • Updates on key decisions adopted by the EU.

This week’s EU27 Bulletin reflects on themes raised at the European Parliament’s plenary in Strasbourg, including adoption of the Parliament’s position on the EU’s annual budget for 2020 and a resolution urging Member States to overcome tax avoidance issues. Further details also emerged about the French nominee proposed this week as Commissioner-designate for the Internal Market, following the Parliament’s rejection of Sylvie Goulard.

In the land of Brexit, following Prime Minister Johnson’s (unsigned) request for an extension, EU Ministers have agreed in principle for the need for an extension, but failed to reach a common position on its length.
