Slovakia takes on the Council presidency

The Slovak presidency begins on 1 July 2016. Its priorities are driven by three interconnected principles of achieving tangible results, overcoming fragmentation and focusing on the citizen.

During the next 6 months, the presidency will focus on four key areas:

  • economically strong Europe
  • modern single market
  • sustainable migration and asylum policies
  • globally engaged Europe

Slovakia will hold the Council presidency until 31 December 2016 and will be followed by Malta.
