Agenda highlights

The Commission’s chief negotiator Michel Barnier will inform the Council about the state of play in the Brexit negotiations with the UK.

He is expected to focus in particular on the following issues:

  • translation into legal text of the commitments in the December joint report
  • completion of the work on other withdrawal issues
  • discussions on the transition period

Ministers will also begin preparations for the March European Council (Article 50) by looking at the annotated draft agenda. At that summit the 27 EU heads of state or government are expected to adopt additional guidelines on the framework for the future relationship with the UK.
