  • Timmermans, who was speaking on Wednesday (8 December) to the National Assembly’s committees on European Affairs and Sustainable Development, promised an inclusive and ambitious ecological transition that leaves no one behind.
  • The Commission is now working to ensure that the constraints placed on EU production are also applied to imported products, the Commission Vice-President stressed.
