Bucharest, April 2 /Agerpres/ – President Klaus Iohannis will host a working meeting on Wednesday at the Cotroceni Presidential Palace alongside the European Council president, Charles Michel, dedicated to the preparation of the future Strategic Agenda of the European Union, the Presidential Administration announced.

According to a press release sent to AGERPRES on Tuesday, the prime ministers of Belgium, Hungary and Croatia will also attend the meeting.

“The consultations held in Bucharest are part of a broader process of defining the European Union’s priorities for the period 2024-2029, which began at the an informal meeting of the European Council, in Granada on 6 October 2023, when the debates of the leaders of the EU Member States revealed the interest in placing security and defence issues, global involvement and enlargement of the Union, and strengthening the Union’s resilience and competitiveness at the top of the European agenda. On the basis of the coordinates established in Granada, the discussions during 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 in order to achieve the common objectives of strengthening the EU’s profile at international level, ensuring prosperity and promoting and protecting democracy and European values,” the Presidential Administration stated.

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.
