"A strong Europe in a world of challenges" is the motto of Croatia's presidency of the Council of the EU, which started on 1 January 2020.

In the next six months, the presidency's programme will focus on four main areas:  a Europe that is developing, a Europe that connects, a Europe that protects, and an influential Europe.

This is Croatia's first presidency of the Council since it joined the EU in 2013.
