Coca-Cola's sponsorship of Romania's Presidency

Question for written answer E-001085-19
to the Council
Rule 130
Dennis de Jong (GUE/NGL)

According to the website of the Romanian Presidency of the Council, Coca-Cola is a ‘platinum partner’[1]. Various civil-society organisations are concerned that the Council of the European Union may be subject to influence (foodwatch.org[2], corporate europe observatory[3]). The European Parliament recently adopted a resolution on transparency of legislative discussions in the preparatory bodies of the Council of the EU (17 January 2019, 2018/2096(INI)[4]).

— What is the total value of Coca-Cola’s sponsorship of Romania’s Presidency of the Council? — What privileges does the status of ‘platinum partner’ confer on Coca-Cola? — Have the agenda and the policies discussed during Romania’s Presidency of the Council of the EU remained free of influence by Coca-Cola despite the sponsorship, and how can this be proven?
