The European Union prepares to inaugurate the Portuguese presidency tomorrow



European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen will travel tomorrow to the Portuguese capital Lisbon to inaugurate the Portuguese presidency of the European Union Council, which begins on January 1, 2021.

 

Ursula is accompanied by Executive Vice Presidents Frans Timmermans, Margaret Westager, Valdes Dombrowskis, High Representative for Foreign Affairs Josep Borrell, Vice President Maroush Shevovic, Margaretis Chinas, and Commissioners Nicolas Schmidt and Elisa Ferrer.

 

The priorities of the Portuguese presidency include promoting European recovery on the basis of climate and digital transformations, establishing the European pillar of social rights as an essential element for implementing a just and comprehensive climate and digital transformation, and strengthening strategic autonomy for a Europe open to the world.

 

This fully aligns with the priorities of the von der Leyen committee, which will allow the two institutions to work closely together over the next six months.

 

The visit will begin Friday morning with a meeting with President von der Leyen and Portuguese Prime Minister Antonio Costa. After that, members of the college and the Portuguese government will attend a plenary session, and von der Leyen and Prime Minister Costa will hold a press conference.

 

In the afternoon, von der Leyen first meets the President of the Portuguese National Assembly, Eduardo Ferro Rodriguez, and then joins the Commissioners for an interview with representatives of the association.

 

After that, President von der Leyen held another meeting with the President of the Portuguese Republic.
