EU Presidency: Germany takes the helm

German EU Presidency

This week Germany assumed the Presidency of the Council of the EU, and will preside over a six-month period in which the Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the culmination of the Brexit transition period will be under the spotlight. Germany’s time at the helm is particularly important, as it begins the next ‘trio’ - the eighteen-month strategic agenda which Portugal and Slovenia will continue.

To help public affairs teams navigate this period, DeHavilland EU has created a briefing providing the critical information you need to understand and engage with the new Presidency.

The briefing covers:

  • An overview of the trio’s priorities in a concise and shareable form
  • How Germany’s domestic politics inform its Presidency priorities, providing context for areas public affairs professionals can focus on when engaging with Ministers
  • Analysis of the Presidency’s policy priorities, to help understand the most effective angles for engaging with its work
  • Profiles of the ministers who will chair the council configurations, so you can map out stakeholders
