"Heavy-duty return to work for the EU" headlines La Voix du Luxembourg in a round-up report on issues tabled for discussion by Europe’s 27 member states in the coming weeks: "Economic governance, the multiannual financial framework, the EU's budget for 2011, the Europe 2020 growth strategy." Some of Brussels’ big-hitters are already at work, notes the daily, which cites the example of “Commissioner for Justice, Fundamental Rights and Citizenship, Viviane Reding who has met with the French Ministers for Immigration and European Affairs to discuss problems with the Rom community." The Commission has also held an internal round-table meeting "to prepare the first speech on the State of the Union" which Commission President José Manuel Barroso is scheduled to deliver to the European Parliament on 7 September.
