Parliament vets Valdis Dombrovskis for Trade Commissioner
Following the resignation of Trade Commissioner Phil Hogan, Commission President Ursula von der Leyen has reshuffled her team. MEPs held two extraordinary hearings for the posts of Trade and Finance. Valdis Dombrovskis, currently the Executive Vice-President of the Commission, was questioned by a group of committees led by the Committee on International Trade for the trade portfolio. Parliament will have the final say on his appointment.
