  • [01] Swedish ambassador outlines Stockholm's EU presidency priorities

  • [01] Swedish ambassador outlines Stockholm's EU presidency priorities

    Economic issues and ways to tackle the international financial crisis will be the main priorities of the Swedish EU Presidency over the next six months.

    Special attention will be given to the monitoring of the banking sector and unemployment, a nagging problem across Europe.

    Swedish ambassador to Athens Hakan Malmqvist outlined the key-points of the Swedish EU presidency in a press conference on Wednesday.

    He underlined that Sweden is concerned about unemployment, which currently has risen to 10 and 11 pct, compared to a previous 3-5 pct, characterising it as a major challenge. Other issues included in the Swedish EU presidency priorities are the climate change, institutional issues, Europe's foreign relations and cooperation in the sector of justice.

    The Swedish EU presidency has underlined that the challenges are many, considering that the EURO of 27 member-states and roughly 500 million people is very different from the European community that was founded 50 years ago.

    The issue of illegal migration will also be discussed in the EU Ministerial Council meeting chaired by Sweden.
