In January 2013, Ireland began its seventh Presidency of the Council of the EU. On this occasion, the Members of the European Commission met with the Members of the Irish Government on 10 January 2013 in Dublin. The main priorities of the Irish Presidency are: people-centred recovery, investment in job-friendly growth and in Europe's resources and European engagement with the world. José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, underlined that 2013 marks an important anniversary for Ireland, as it celebrates 40 years as an EU Member State. Ireland has undergone a radical transformation since 1973, developing into a modern, open economy driven by hi-tech industry and global exports. In the last 40 years, peace has returned to Northern Ireland, Irish has become the 23rd official language of the EU and the country has joined the single currency.
