Juha Sipilä and Jean-Claude Juncker talked about external border control

Finnish Prime Minister Juha Sipilä and the European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker met in Helsinki last week, reported Verkkouutiset. The two held a broad debate on the development of the European Union and its future challenges.

The leaders also discussed Finland’s priorities for the Commission’s forthcoming five-year program and Finland’s forthcoming EU Presidency. The issues of the EU’s response to migration and international trade and the development of the EU’s internal market were raised too.

Mr Sipilä and Mr Juncker agreed that the strengthening of a statutory international trading system should continue to be the priority of the EU’s trade policy. « The EU must continue to play a strong role in the World Trade Organization’s reform. Likewise, we must endeavor to engage the United States and China in this process as well, » Mr Sipilä said.
