About the Speech:

The launch of an EU-wide debate in 2016 on the future of the EU27 has generated bold and far-reaching ideas for the Union. Can these ideas consolidate and deepen the cooperation among Member States? Would further integration contribute to dealing more effectively with future challenges? State Secretary Iztok Mirošic addressed these questions and reflected on the policy priorities on which the EU will have to focus in the future.
