Romania takes over Presidency of the Council of the EU for first time

Between January 1 and June 30, 2019, Romania will exercise its first mandate at the rotating Presidency of the Council of the EU against a background of a European agenda marked by political developments and dossiers with a decisive impact on the Union’s future.

The withdrawal of the UK from the European Union, the negotiation of the future European budget, the European Parliament elections in May 2019, preceded by a campaign with major political stakes and messages with potential for disinformation is set to increase the complexity of the agenda.

During the previous six months, Austria hosted the Presidency.
