Malta will hold the rotating EU Council presidency from January to July 2017.  This is the first time Malta has held the presidency. More information on what the role involves is available here. The six priorities identified by the Maltese government for its presidency are:

  • Migration
  • Single market
  • Security
  • Social inclusion
  • Europe’s neighbourhood
  • Maritime security

A briefing note from the European Parliament Think Tanks looks at these priorities and at other ongoing issues the European Parliament will need to address during this time.
