Getting ready for the Bulgarian Presidency

On 1 January 2018, Bulgaria will take over the rotating Presidency of the EU from Estonia. In preparation for this, the EESC has held a special meeting of its Bureau in Sophia and is drawing up a number of opinions, events and other initiatives, both in Brussels and Bulgaria. An overview of the presidency's priorities, together with a timetable of EESC-related activities, will be provided in the January issue of this newsletter.
