Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the EU

Created on Friday, 08 Jan 2021 14:57:02

On 1 January, Portugal took over the rotating Presidency of the Council of the EU for 6 months until 30 June 2021. The Presidency had been held by Germany for the previous half year. 

Like every Council Presidency, Portugal has an official website and an official programme for the time of their leadership. 
While many activities will still be dominated and steered by the ongoing Coronavirus crisis and especially the socioeconomic recovery from it, the Presidency is also a chance for the respective country to set its own agenda and priorities. 

In this regard, the Portuguese Presidency has chosen the motto "Time to deliver: a fair, green and digital recovery" and has declared five priority areas in which key actions will be developed.
