In the first half of 2024, Belgium will hold the Presidency of the Council of the European Union for the thirteenth time. This offers not only our country a unique opportunity to exert even more influence on the European agenda. The Government of Flanders, too, is making the necessary preparations to give its best.
Although the EU Presidency is a matter for the member states, the Government of Flanders will also make an important contribution from 1 January to June 2024. Belgium is a federal country, where both the federal government and the regions and communities set the laws and the agenda.
