H.E. Jean Faltz will present the priorities of the Luxembourg Presidency of the EU Council and will offer a valuable insight into the development of the EU during the upcoming six months. He will describe the Luxembourg point of view on a number of issues concerning the role of the smaller member-states in the forming and conducting of the common EU policy, the common security policy, migration and taxation issues as well as financial policies.
Minister Mitov will outline the main challenges Bulgaria faces, including the expectations from the new programming period, the preparation of the upcoming Bulgarian Presidency of the EU Council in 2018, the place of Bulgaria in the geopolitics of the Ukrainian Conflict, as well as other issues of national importance.
The speeches of the two lecturers will be followed by a Q&A session.
