A key element of the meeting will be a discussion between the leaders of the parliamentary groups of the Senate and House of Representatives and the College of Commissioners. The topics under discussion will be 'migration and refugees’ and 'the European budget/the multiannual financial framework’.
The meeting will take place from 15.30 to 17.00 in the assembly hall of the Senate. The President of the Senate, Ankie Broekers-Knol, the temporary Speaker of the House of Representatives, Khadija Arib, and the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, will deliver a few words of welcome. Other members of parliament will then introduce the two themes, after which the discussion will take place. This meeting will be preceded by a meeting in Amsterdam between the European Commission and the Dutch government.
