Brussels, 14 October 2010

Message from President Barroso to Mr Mark Rutte, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of the Netherlands

"Dear Prime Minister,

On behalf of the European Commission, I wish to congratulate you on your appointment as Prime Minister of the new Dutch Government.

Europe is in front of very important challenges: promoting solid economic recovery, improving the economic governance in the Union and implementing the "Europe 2020" strategy for a forward-looking and sustainable economy, among others. I am firmly convinced that the contribution of the Netherlands to all these matters is extremely relevant.

I look forward to cooperating with you in tackling the challenges Europe is facing.

I wish you and your government every success.

Sincerely yours,

José Manuel Durão Barroso"
