Good Idea - Slovakia!
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the European Union which will take place from 1 July 2016 until 31 December 2016. It is the first experience for the Slovak Republic to hold the rotating presidency and chair formal and informal meetings at all levels and areas within the European Union.
Public Administrations in Europe face major challenges in different areas concerning the quality and efficiency of services provided to citizens as well as the ability of civil servants to adapt themselves to a modern technical era. We all realize that current times require more flexibility, efficiency and modernity in public administrations throughout Europe and the active involvement of our citizens. Therefore the Slovak EUPAN presidency will focus on topics, which we consider relevant, timely and important.
During the previous presidencies EUPAN has undergone a crucial and dynamic period of transformation and changes originating from the last EUPAN Ministerial meeting in Rome in 2014, which has brought into our network a new wave of cooperation, interaction and relevance. The Slovak Presidency shall build upon these changes and the new elements of collaboration, which have already been applied by our predecessors the Luxembourgish and Dutch presidencies.
On behalf of the Slovak EUPAN team I look forward to our cooperation and welcoming you in Bratislava!
