EU-Western Balkans Summit

October 2021

Slovenia is going to take over the Presidency of the EU Council from the 1 July 2021. One of the most important priorities of Slovene Foreign policy is EU enlargement to the Western Balkans, not becuase we are an altruistic country, but because this region is vital for our stability and prosperity.

Therefore Slovenia is hosting an EU-Western Balkans Summit in October 2021.

Why is the Summit important? Because we can somehow streamline and synchronise all the activities that EU and Western Balkan countries are doing together. One of the things that is going to feature most prominently at the Summit is the whole agenda of connectivity, and especially the Green Agenda, meaning the transition from coal to green.
