Results of the French Presidency of the Council of the European Union
From 1st January to 30th June 2022, France held the Presidency of the Council of the European Union. On July 1st, 2022, it handed over the presidency to the Czech Republic, which will hold it for the next six months.
In the context of the current crises, the PFUE (Présidence Française du Conseil de l’Union Européenne / Presidency of the Council of the European Union) has worked to achieve ambitious goals in maintaining the green and digital transitions, protecting and adapting its social model, enabling economic recovery, facing defense challenges and affirming the interests and importance of European values. With more than 400 events organised in France and 2,000 meetings of European leaders, set against the particular backdrop of the war in Ukraine, the French Presidency has enabled concrete progress with 130 texts passed on priority political issues for a Europa that is more sovereign, social, greener and closer to the citizen.
Together with the Czech Republic and with Sweden, the third member of the trio, France will remain committed to its contribution to the success of this Presidency.
