As part of a series of "town hall" meetings across the EU, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport will lead an Irish event with Minister for European Affairs, Helen McEntee TD. This follows Jean-Claude Juncker's invitation to Member States to tell the Commission where they want Europe to head in the future, whether they want more or less "Europe" and how.
The event, which takes place on Wednesday 13 December starting at 12.30 pm, is open to the public, just registration is needed. UCD and RTE's Aoibhin Ní Shúilleabháin will moderate the discussion. There will be light refreshments at 12 pm.
The event will be webstreamed below.
In a statement welcoming today's agreement between the EU and the UK and the assessment of President Jean Claude Juncker that sufficient progress has been to move to phase two of the Brexit negotiations, EU Agriculture and Rural Development Commissioner Phil Hogan said: "Today's agreement is an important milestone along the road, but there is still a long road to be travelled before we reach agreement on the future EU-UK relationship. The provisions relating to North-South cooperation fully vindicate the Irish government's position and reflect the solidarity which the European Union has consistently shown for Ireland since the UK's decision to leave. The unity of purpose, understanding and support for Ireland shown by the other 26 Member States was particularly welcome."
