Jacques Delors made a speech at the dinner of the European Steering Committee (ESC) of Notre Europe – Jacques Delors Institute, which was also attended by some invited external personalities and journalists. He took a stand on three main issues:

1. The financial crisis reveals the fragility of the euro zone;
2. A deterioration in the EU’s internal climate;
3. The EU faces institutional obstacles.

He also dealt with the UK-EU relationship and the attitude towards the proposal of a
political union made by German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

The European Steering Committee (ESC) brings together high-profile European figures to
discuss subjects of fundamental importance to the future of the EU. It has a
role in orienting the work of Notre
Europe – Jacques Delors Institute
and proposes ways forward for European
integration.
Chaired by Jacques Delors, the ESC meets once yearly.
Its
deliberations are the subject of a written synthesis and the joint declaration it
adopts is published in numerous European national daily newspapers.
