@ European Union

The presidency of the EU rotates among the EU countries. During a 6-month period, the country holding the presidency heads the Council of the European Union, organises the meetings of the leaders of the Member States, and indicates the areas in which it would like the EU to progress.

Since July 1st, it is Czechia’s turn to hold the presidency.

The country has set 5 priorities that the EU should focus on for the months to come, under the slogan “Europe as a Task: Rethink, Rebuild, Repower”:

  • EU solidarity with Ukraine 
  • Energy Security
  • Europe’s defence and cybersecurity
  • European economy
  • Resilience of democratic institutions
