The Presidency of the Council of the EU passes to Finland

From 1 July until 31 December 2019, Finland holds the Presidency of the Council of the EU. Working closely with Romania and Croatia, the other members of the current Presidency trio, it seeks to address a competitive and socially inclusive EU, promote action on climate change and protect the security of its citizens.

The Finnish Presidency supports the EU Roadmap on Carcinogens, and it plans to host a conference on preventing work-related cancer in November.
