ČRo Plus | European leaders meet on the EU strategic agenda

Petr Fiala will discuss the future direction of the European Union with other European leaders in Vilnius, Lithuania. At an informal working dinner the new strategic agenda is the main topic. The strategy is always defined in the context of the European Parliament elections and before the appointment of each European Commission. In an interview for ČRo Plus Viktor Daněk, deputy director of the EUROPEUM Institute, spoke about both the Czech and EU priorities.

It is interesting to see who will attend the dinner. Only the Czech Republic is invited from Central Europe, so Petr Fiala will de facto be the only representative of this region. The other participants, such as the Netherlands or Sweden, are quite important allies of ours on topics that are key to the strategic agenda, such as competitiveness.

You can listen to the full interview from about 9. minute here.
