European Parliament plenary session

European Parliament, Strasbourg

Angela Merkel/German Presidency: on Wednesday from around 14.15, MEPs will debate with German Chancellor Angela Merkel the strategy and main goals of the German Presidency. Under the motto "Together for Europe's recovery", Germany will focus on the EU's long-term budget (the MFF) as well as the Recovery Plan post COVID-19, on the future relationship with the UK, climate change, digitalisation, migration and Europe's role in the world.

EU summits: looking back on the 19 June and forward to the 17 July EU summits, MEPs will convey their stance on future EU financing and economic recovery in a debate with Presidents von der Leyen and Michel.

Reform of road transport sector: Parliament will have its final say on new rules on posting of drivers, drivers' rest times and better enforcement of cabotage rules (transport of goods carried out by non-resident hauliers on a temporary basis). The reform will help to ensure fair remuneration for drivers, prevent systematic cabotage and fight the use of letterbox companies.

Public health strategy: MEPs are to debate with Health Commissioner Stella Kyriakides a much-needed overhaul of the EU's public health policy to ensure that health systems across the EU are better equipped and coordinated to face future health threats (debate Wednesday, vote on resolution Friday).
