UE Council: sponsorship of the Presidency is a matter for the Member State

Reply to Question about Coca-Cola's sponsorship of Romania's Presidency

Reply, 14.5.2019.
The organisation of the Presidency, including a decision to seek sponsorship for elements of the Presidency, is a matter for the Member State authorities concerned. It is not for the Council to reply to questions that are the responsibility of its Presidency.

Question for written answer E-001085/2019 to the Council


Dennis de Jong (GUE/NGL)

Subject: Coca-Cola's sponsorship of Romania's Presidency

According to the website of the Romanian Presidency of the Council, Coca-Cola is a ‘platinum partner’[1]. Various civil-society organisations are concerned that the Council of the European Union may be subject to influence ([2], corporate europe observatory[3]). The European Parliament recently adopted a resolution on transparency of legislative discussions in the preparatory bodies of the Council of the EU (17 January 2019, 2018/2096(INI)[4]).
