Presidency of the Council of the EU 2017


The Presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) rotates among the EU Member States every six months and the country holding the Presidency drives forward the Council's work. The EU Council is an essential decision maker which together with the European Parliament (EP) adopts legislation and coordinates EU policies.

Presidency is an opportunity for each Member State, regardless of its size or the length of the membership, to influence the EU agenda and guide the EU endeavours. Malta for the first time is assuming this task from 1 January 2017 to 30 June 2017 taking it over from Slovakia and afterwards handing over the reins of the Presidency to the Estonia.
