Message of congratulations of President Barroso to the newly elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the Rt Hon David Cameron MP
President Barroso has today sent the following message of congratulations to the newly elected Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, the Rt Hon David Cameron MP: "On behalf of the European Commission, I would like to offer you my warmest congratulations on your election as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. I wish you and your Government every success in the demanding work ahead. Like all European Governments, you face difficult choices in difficult times. I am confident that you will chart the right course to steer the United Kingdom out of the current crisis and back on the path of sustainable growth. Many of the challenges ahead – delivering economic recovery, fighting global poverty, tackling climate change, ensuring energy security, - are common across the European Union and require a common response. I look forward to working closely with you on these and other issues, such as boosting the internal market and promoting smarter regulation, more transparency and greater accountability in the European Union. I also look forward to welcoming you to Brussels in the near future."
