Ambitious programme for first Lithuanian presidency

Relations with Europe's Eastern neighbours, an agreement on a single resolution mechanism for Europe's banks and the first assessment of national budgets at the EU level are likely to be among the highlights of Lithuania's first six-month stint in the EU Presidency. 

Speaking at a debate in the European Parliament on 3 July on the country's ambitious presidency programme, Vice-President Maroš Šefčovič also welcomed the commitment of Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaitė to promoting sustainable jobs and growth and to working on issues of importance such as the agreement on a new statute for European political parties.
