Prague, 10 November 2009 - Today’s nomination to become the next European Commissioner is a great honor for me. I welcome the fact that lengthy and complicated search of the Czech representative in the European Commission lead to a consensus on this matter. I greatly value the confidence and the strong mandate I was granted by this decision.  Should I be confirmed in this position, I stand ready to serve with a maximum responsibility.
