Agenda briefing plenary session from the 24th of June 2015 in Brussels

  • Political group leaders will comment on the outcome of the Euro Summit on Greece and focus on the most urgent policy issues facing EU heads of state or government at their 25-26 June meeting: migration, security and economic challenges. Statements by Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker and the Latvian Presidency of the Council will kick off the joint debate at 14.00 in Parliament’s Brussels plenary session on Wednesday 24 June.

  • The €315-billion investment plan, announced by the European Commission last November to encourage the financing of viable investments in Europe, is set to receive the European Parliament’s final approval in a vote on Wednesday. Parliament modified the financing structure of the fund behind the plan, won a say in selecting its leadership and stepped up democratic oversight of its operation.

  • MEPs are to debate the European Commission’s corporate taxation action plan on Wednesday evening with tax Commissioner Pierre Moscovici, who tabled it on 17 June. The plan, which would introduce a common corporate tax base (CCTB), follows the Commission’s March proposal for automatic exchange of tax rulings between tax authorities and the Commission.

  • Parliament will debate and vote its stance on the euro area’s economic governance architecture on Wednesday afternoon. The draft resolution by Pervenche Berès (S&D, FR) looks back at experience gained so far and comes up with recommendations for improvements.
