As holder of the Presidency of the Council of the EU, Romania will act as a true impartial mediator to generate solutions in view of advancing the European agenda. During its presidency of the Council of the European Union, Romania will act in a coordinated manner within the Trio of Presidencies along with Finland and Croatia, while ensuring continuity with the previous Trio in achieving the goals undertaken within the Strategic Agenda.

Romania’s taking charge of the Presidency of the Council of the European Union comes with a series of obligations for our country as regards the coordination of European actions to protect the environment, the Romanian Presidency having as its main objective the European citizens as both source and beneficiary of the European action, with their own aspirations and concerns; Romania is aware of its status of a transition presidency between two parliamentary terms, during which complex files will be discussed.
