The External Coordination Unit helps prepare the Group President and the other office holders for the meetings of Parliament's governing bodies: those of the Conference of Presidents, the EP Bureau, the Quaestors and the Conference of Committee Chairs.
In addition, the Unit is in charge of maintaining the Group's working relations with the Council of European Union and the European Commission.
