Donald Tusk, Polish Prime Minister and President in office of the Council of the EU, welcomed José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, Herman van Rompuy, President of the European Council, Jerzy Buzek, President of the EP, and Viktor Orbán, Hungarian Prime Minister, for the inauguration of the Polish Presidency celebrations at the Polish National Opera in Warsaw on 1 July 2011. Bronisław Komorowski, President of Poland, and Janusz Lewandowski, Member of the EC in charge of Financial Programming and Budget, were also present at the ceremony. Indeed, 1 July marks the start of Poland's chairmanship of the Council of the European Union. Poland is taking over the Presidency from Hungary. The Polish Presidency gets under way amid many serious economic and social challenges facing the European Union. Poland's programme and plan of activity are its response to those challenges. Poland’s objectives already enjoy the support of many European countries and community institutions. Surveys have shown that the Presidency is supported by Polish society, one of the EU's most euro-enthusiastic. The goals to be pursued over the next six months are efforts to deepen the integration of the EU market which should lead to swifter economic growth. Efforts will also be made to further enlarge the EU and strengthen cooperation with neighbours, guaranteeing greater stability in this region of the world, both in the south and the east. Other goals are the strengthening of Europe’s energy, food and military security.
