About us



Presidency is an opportunity for each Member State, regardless of its size or the length of the membership, to influence the EU agenda and guide the EU endeavours. Latvia for the first time is assuming this task from 1 January 2015 to 30 June 2015 taking it over from Italy and afterwards handing over the reins of the presidency to Luxembourg.


The presidency represents the Council in relations with the other EU institutions; it cooperates with other Member States and General Secretariat of the EU Council, the Commission, European Parliament and the President of the European Council. The presidency represents the Council also outside the EU.


Presidency is not all about politics. It is a responsibility and a unique opportunity for all of us personally – to work together, expand borders of cooperation, and raise awareness of each other. Rotating presidencies is an opportunity to get to know European diversity in order to grow stronger together and to govern, organise and influence our futures better and better.
