The European Union's significant and ever-deepening innovation links with Australia will be the central theme of this year's Europe Day celebrations in Canberra. Europe Day celebrates the declaration by the then French foreign minister, Robert Schuman, that called on 9 of May 1950 for a "creative" solution to end conflict on the European Continent. His innovative proposal to merge France and Germany's coal and steel industries brought peace and has led ultimately to the creation of the European Union. The desire to innovate and help frame global solutions has been developed by the EU over the years in areas such as development, human rights, rule of law, trade and climate action.
Bienvenue à la célébration de la fête de l`Europe ! Cette célébration coïncide avec le 40ème anniversaire de l’Union Européenne en Canada (et de notre coopération formelle), que nous célébrons durant toute l’ année 2016.
