Slovenian Presidency in numbers

The second Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the EU lasted six months or 184 days. The four members of the online editorial team, who managed the website in six languages and published 339 news stories in seven months, have prepared a review of the Slovenian Presidency in numbers.

Events in Slovenia

Due to the relatively good epidemiological situation in the summer, Slovenia was able to carry out a significant part of the events in‑person. Meetings were organised throughout the country; however, due to the demanding organisational requirements, meetings at the highest level took place at the Brdo Congress Centre.

Chairing the Council of the EU and the achievements

The main task of the country holding the presidency is to chair meetings at different levels and reconcile the positions of the 27 EU member states. Slovenian Presidency focused on four priority areas. The most important achievements of the Slovenian Presidency are progress in adopting legislation on digital services and digital markets, strengthening the European Health Union, and the recovery and resilience‑building after the COVID‑19 pandemic.

Gastronomy and culture

As Slovenia was awarded the title of the European Region of Gastronomy, Slovenian cuisine was also an important part of the Slovenian Presidency - in the form of gifts and meals at the meetings. During its presidency, Slovenia organised numerous cultural events both within the EU and beyond its borders. The Europe Readr online platform was set up, where European literary works are available to readers in 24 EU languages free of charge.
