A challenging EU Presidency for Lithuania

Lithuania is the first baltic state to take the helm of the EU’s rotating Presidency. It faces a daunting task with a full agenda and the need to secure agreements between 28 Member States on a wide range of important issues ahead of the EU elections to be held next year.

– focus on tackling youth employment
– important energy security issues
Eastern Partnership policy with a specific attention to concluding the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area (DCFTA) with Ukraine
