The Czech Republic’s Minister for Regional Development Věra Jourová, whom the Czech government has nominated for EU commissioner, will meet European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in late August, Ms Jourova confirmed Friday to the Czech News Agency. The minister had her first meeting with Martin Selmayr, the head of Juncker´s cabinet, in Brussels on Thursday. After the meeting, she expressed confidence she had a good chance of heading the regional development portfolio in the EC. The Czech Republic’s nominee was originally to meet Juncker on Thursday, but he postponed the date of their meeting until the end of August to be able to meet first with all the candidates for EU commissioner from all of the member states.
