Presidency of the EUCouncil

<b>Slovenia holds the Presidency of the Council of the European Union </b><p>Only sixteen years after the independence and sovereignty, after four years of full membership in the European Union, Slovenia took up for the first half of 2008 the presidency of the Council of the European Union, formed by 27 countries, as the first country among the new members.The term 'the presiding country to the EU' means that for the period of six months the Member State presides the Council of the EU, formed by 27 countries. The duty of the presiding country is to lead the Council of the EU in a way which ensures a constructive and efficient progress of the work on the meetings of the EU Council and all its formations, as well as working groups from all areas of action in the EU. The presiding country has to objectively coordinate various interests of Member States and has to be impartial while preparing and accepting compromise proposals. The Presidency of the Council of the European Union is a project of national significance and demands a consensus at all levels of decision-making for its substantive and organisational realization. During the presidency, Slovenia will organize more than 100 events, from traditional events at the government level to meetings and conferences with third countries, which demands careful preparations and coordinated operations of all participants.Formal meetings in Brussels and various informal events in Slovenia offer an amazing opportunity for the promotion of Slovenian culture, tradition, achievements and recognition of Slovenia in Europe and all over the world. A successful presidency will prove our capabilities of taking up the most demanding and responsible tasks, which will strengthen our reputation among the Member States of the EU and in the world.</b><p>Government Communication Office
