European Parliamentary Week on 3-4 February

29-01-2015 - 11:41

The next edition of the European Parliamentary Week (EPW) will take place on 3rd and 4th February 2015 at the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels.  The EPW aims to bring together parliamentarians from all over the European Union to discuss economic, budgetary and social matters.
Within the framework of the EPW two events will take place.
•    The first event is the Interparliamentary meeting on the European Semester Cycles 2014 and 2015, taking place in the context of the preparation of the European Parliament reports for the priorities for the next Semester Cycle based on the Annual Growth Survey. The purpose of this event is to enhance the democratic dimension of the decision-making process by discussing and scrutinising the actions of the executive within the framework of the Semester cycle. This event will include plenary sessions as well as three parallel interparliamentary committee meetings that will each be organised by the EP Committees on Economic and Monetary Affairs (ECON), on Employment and Social Affairs (EMPL) and on Budgets (BUDG).
•    The second event is the Interparliamentary Conference under Article 13 of the Treaty on Stability, Coordination and Governance in the Economic and Monetary Union (TSCG). The Conference is co-organised and co-presided by the Saeima of the Republic of Latvia and the European Parliament. This will be the fourth edition of the Conference which is aimed at further developing the cooperation of the Parliaments of the European Union in relation to matters covered by the TSCG.
