In his state of the Union speech in 2016, Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission, announced launching a White Paper on the Future of
Europe, the Commission's contribution to the
Summit of Rome of March 25, 2017. It presents five scenarios, planned as open and not exclusive: Carry-on, Nothing but the single market, Those who
want more do more, Doing less more effectively, Doing much more
together. The leaders of the four most relevant European countries: France, Germany, Italy and Spain, met in Versailles on March 6 and
decided to deepen integration, including exclusively those members who have
the political will to do so.
The White Paper establishes a road map for sectoral developments that will run until the elections to the European Parliament in 2019, creating historic momentum. Joaquín Almunia will give a cross-sectional view of the issues that the White Paper and the Road Map pose for the future of European Union.
