Ests voorzitterschap Europese Unie 2e helft 2017

Van 1 juli tot en met 31 december 2017 vervulde Estland†i het voorzitterschap†i van de Raad van de Europese Unie†i. Estland was de opvolger van Malta†i. Het was de eerste keer dat dit land het voorzitterschap bekleedde. Belangrijke prioriteiten voor Estland waren de interne markt en de digitale interne markt in het bijzonder, de energie-unie en de verdere integratie van Oost-Europese landen in de Europese Unie. Ook wilde Estland tijdens het voorzitterschap online oplossingen en informatievoorziening in het Europees beleid promoten.

Het thema van het Ests voorzitterschap was "Unity through Balance". Er was veel aandacht voor de relatie van de mens met de natuur en voor de uitdagingen en mogelijkheden die nieuwe technologieŽn met zich meebrengen.
