Invitation: Liberal Breakfast on the Bulgarian Presidency

Bulgaria just started its first EU Council Presidency. The country seeks to meet Europe’s challenges by preserving and strengthening unity and solidarity amongst the Member States.

Its declared priorities for the presidency are finding compromises in the areas of migration, the future of the EU cohesion policy, moving forward with the digital single market, as well as fighting youth unemployment. Furthermore, it will be interesting to observe how Bulgaria will bring in the Balkan perspective in order to mend in the area of migration policy and pre-accession talks with the Western Balkan countries.

How will Bulgaria, which in many aspects is still seen as the ‘problem child’ of the EU, handle the presidency? Is the country well equipped in order to steer through EU’s troubled waters when it comes to the Brexit negotiations?

Join us for our Liberal Breakfast together with our distinguished speaker, in order to discuss these and other questions.
