Pre-summit Briefing 2018/1

23 February: Institutions and Money 

The European Council meeting on 23 February is informal and is likely to be relatively short. After a brief exchange of views at noon with Antonio Tajani, the president of the European Parliament, who might well emerge from the forthcoming Italian elections as the next prime minister and therefore as a member of the European Council in his own right, the European Council proper will begin with a working lunch. One can never be certain how long either the lunch or the second working session directly afterwards will last, but the Presidency expects, or at least hopes, that the meeting will finish by 18.30.
