European Council, 23-24 March 2023



EU leaders will gather for a European Council summit on 23-24 March 2023. The main items on the agenda are the ongoing war in Ukraine, the competitive of the European single market and the economy, as well as energy prices and logistics.

In a debate with Presidents Michel and von der Leyen, MEPs outlined their expectations for the 23-24 March European Council.

President of the European Council Charles Michel acknowledged Ukraine’s urgent need for more weapons and ammunition and confirmed that EU leaders will work on a proposal by High Representative Borrell to offer Kyiv assistance.

Commission President Ursula von der Leyen reported back from her meeting with US President Joe Biden, saying there is “a striking symmetry between the US Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and the European Green Deal,” since both aim to fight climate change and boost investment and growth.
