On 23 October 2011, there will be two summits in Brussels.
At first, the European Council will discuss the economic policy, including the promotion of growth and employment, and preparations for the G20 Summit. After this meeting, eurozone leaders will debate the financial situation and governance of the euro area.
At the European Council meeting, heads of state and government will identify a number of priorities required for securing sustainable growth and job creation. They will also discuss the sovereign debt crisis, economic governance and recapitalisation of banks.
Strengthening of the single market, supporting the digital agenda and cutting red tape for businesses are necessary to boost the EU's growth potential and help pull Europe out of the crisis.
The European Council will also discuss ways to mobilise the EU's external policies to promote the growth agenda, including at the G20 Summit in Cannes at the beginning of November 2011 in Cannes.
After the European Council, eurozone heads of state and government will discuss the financial situation, including the strengthening of the banking system, economic and fiscal coordination and surveillance, and the governance structure of the euro area.
