Austria takes over EU presidency

The Austrian government led by the young conservative chancellor, Sebastian Kurz, aged only 31, has taken over the rotating presidency of the Council with a programme focused on tackling immigration. The Austrian presidency of the EU, the third following 1998 and 2006, has for its slogan “A Europe that protects”. Even if its European (and even national) policy agenda is dominated by migration and security, the Chancellor also expressed his support for the digitalisation of the European economy, and the integration of the Western Balkans in the EU as two key priorities, in a video message published on Twitter. In addition to these three priorities, the Austrian presidency will also deal with two major challenges: the negotiations on the multiannual financial framework for the 2021-2027 period, as well as the UK’s final stretch for its leave from the EU, scheduled for March 2019.
