Germany takes over as council president of the EU on January 1st, 2007

Deutsch | français

On January 1st, 2007, Germany takes over from Finland the EU council presidency. High expectations are attached to this, in particular with regard to a resuscitation of the constitutional process. An unofficial EU summit in Berlin is planned for March 25th, 2007, not only in order to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Rome Treaties, but also as a “Berlin Statement” on further constitutional process is expected.
