EU Leaders Convene in Bucharest for Strategic Agenda Planning

Bucharest, Romania - A high-level meeting of the EU Council, Belgium, Hungary, and Croatia is set to take place on Wednesday, hosted by Romanian President Klaus Iohannis at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace. The meeting, reported by Romanian news agency AGERPRES, will focus on the preparation of the future Strategic Agenda of the European Union.

The meeting will be attended by the European Council president, Charles Michel, and the prime ministers of Belgium, Hungary, and Croatia. The consultations in Bucharest are part of a broader process of defining the European Union’s priorities for the period 2024-2029, which began at an informal meeting of the European Council in Granada on 6th October 2023.

The leaders of the EU member states have expressed interest in placing security and defence issues, global involvement and expansion of the Union, and strengthening the Union’s resilience and competitiveness at the top of the European agenda.

The Presidential Administration stated, “The discussions in the meeting at the Cotroceni Palace will be an opportunity to deepen these elements and to analyse the lines of action at the level of the European Union to achieve the common objectives of strengthening the EU’s profile at the international level, ensuring prosperity and promoting and protecting democracy and European values.”

The discussions to prepare the Strategic Agenda for the next institutional cycle will continue at the level of EU leaders, with the aim of its adoption by the European Council at the meeting scheduled for the end of June this year.
