EU’s Post-Brexit Plan Ready

EU’s Post-Brexit Plan Ready

European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will on Wednesday unveil his plan for the European Union’s future after Britain’s departure, his spokesman said.
Juncker’s so-called “White Paper” will be presented to the European Parliament after commissioners get a first look at it on Tuesday, the spokesmanwas quoted as saying by AFP.
European Union leaders will then consider Juncker’s plan at a summit on March 9-10, before coming up with their own post-Brexit roadmap at a special meeting in Rome on March 25.
“On Wednesday, president Juncker will go to the European Parliament to present the White Paper on the future of the union,” Juncker’s Spokesman Margaritis Schinas told a briefing.
Britain’s shock June 2016 vote to leave the EU—coupled with crises involving the economy and migration—has plunged the 28-nation EU into a deep bout of soul-searching.
At a special summit in Italy to mark the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome that founded the EU, the bloc’s leaders will issue a special declaration with new plans for future.
The declaration, expected to cover the next 10 years, is likely to contain suggestions for a “multi-speed Europe” in which EU states can decide on how much integration they want, European sources told AFP.
EU leaders are also keen to move on and not let the entire European project get bogged down in what promise to be difficult negotiations with Britain over its exit, which is expected in 2019. Schinas said Juncker’s plan was meant to open a “debate” ahead of the Rome declaration and said there was a “lot of interest” in the former Luxembourg prime minister’s views.
