Let's talk about Europe

The Danish ambition

Since this Sunday, Denmark is holding the rotating Council of EU Presidency, succeeding Poland. The transfer of power was discreet but did not question the ambition of Copenhagen.

Indeed, in an international context dominated by the economic crisis and the Eurozone crisis, the Helle Thorning-Schmidt social-democratic government clearly shows its ambitions, in order to give to Europe a better credibility vis-à-vis citizens.

To get this objective, a video clip was made, summing up the EU Danish presidency’s priorities for renewable energies, fight against terrorism and cyber-criminality and jobs. The Danish PM and social-democratic leader intervenes on the video, which I find good.

If you are interested in the EU Danish presidency and you wish following the works, go on the following website: http://eu2012.dk. I enjoy to say hello to Lise, my CoE Danish comrade! All the best for this year and all my greetings of success and wealth for you and your country!
