NewsRoom Finland: Jorma Ollila named vice-chair of EU’s group of ‘wise men’

14.12.2007 at 19:08

EU leaders on Friday named Jorma Ollila, the chairman of Finnish mobile phone maker Nokia and Anglo-Dutch oil giant Royal Dutch Shell, one of the two vice-chairs of the bloc’s new group of “wise men”.

The controversial “reflection group” is to be led by the former Spanish prime minister Felipe Gonzalez, the other vice-chair being the former Latvian president Vaira Vike-Freiberga.

The group is not expected to have much political sway as the majority of the member states were against forming the group, an initiative by Nicolas Sarkozy, the French president.

The group has until 2010 to think about challenges facing the EU in 2020-30.
