Germany hosts Presidency of the Council of the EU from 1 July 2020

Germany will hold the Presidency — one of the EU’s most important decision-making bodies — until 31 December 2020. It takes over from Croatia and is the first in a new 18-month Presidency trio, with Portugal and Slovenia.

The German Presidency aims to fight coronavirus and tackle the economic consequences of the pandemic without neglecting other important issues facing the EU. The overall goal is to ensure that Europe emerges from the crisis stronger and more resilient than ever.
