On behalf of the European Committee of the Regions I warmly welcome the election of Mr Tajani as President of the European Parliament. He can count on our support to build a strong leadership of the willing to unite the pro-European political forces.
We have a common goal: to ensure first and foremost that the European Union works with and for every citizen. This effort cannot come only from Brussels. It needs to be delivered at the local, regional, national and EU level.
