On 9 March 2018, Herman Van Rompuy and Janis A. Emmanouilidis met the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, to present and discuss the New Pact for Europe Report "Re-energising Europe: A package deal for the EU27".
President Juncker declared after having read and discussed the NPE Report that
"Europe's destiny is in its own hands. We all have a stake in our shared future and every voice must be heard and listened to if we are to build an ambitious and forward looking Union. By deep-diving into what the people of Europe want for their future, the Re-energising Europe report helps us do just that."
The President of the European Commission thanked "Herman Van Rompuy and all those involved for this invaluable resource as we shape a stronger and more united Union of 27"
