Co-operation between the Committee of the Regions (CoR) and the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC)

A quote from the latest article by Martin Westlake, the Secretary General of the European Economic and Social Committee:
[T]he Political Monitoring Group [...] is composed of members from both the CoR and the EESC and its remit is to oversee the workings of the cooperation agreement between the two Committees, particularly with regard to the so-called Joint Services (notably translation and logistics), where the two Committees have decided to realise considerable economies of scale by pooling their resources in a joint structure.
That is exactly why it is of value that people from inside the EU institutions are blogging:

They can raise attention to little details - such as a Political Monitoring Group supervising a joint agreement between the EESC and the CoR - which have an impact on the daily work of EU institutions but which rarely find the daylight of public or scientific attention.

Therefore: Thanks, Martin, for blogging!
