STA, 17 July 2019 - The rule of law, sustainable development and security in the Western Balkans were laid down as top priorities for Slovenia's EU presidency in the second half of 2021 at what was the second preparatory meeting on Wednesday.
The top priorities will expectedly be adopted by the government at its first session in August, the government Communications Office said in a press release.
Following the principle less is more, the government ministers taking part in today's meeting at the Brdo pri Kranju conference centre expressed the view that the three priorities could be the thread running through Slovenia's presidency, the office said.
This will be Slovenia's second presidency after the country entered the EU in 2004. The project is estimated to cost EUR 80 million.
Slovenia will preside over 30 ministerials and more than 2,000 other meetings, most of them to be held in Brussels.
