Opening Plenary: A vision for the next European Commission
13:15 - 14:15
The race is on to become the next president of the European Commission. How should we judge the performance of the present commission? What should be the new Commission’s priorities? What should the programme be for the next Commission? What can it realistically achieve? How can it ensure that the EU becomes relevant for citizens? We talk to the current European Commission First Vice President Frans Timmermans who is running to lead the next Commission.
