When the UK formally initiated the process of leaving the EU by triggering Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty two years ago, the British government promised the UK would leave the EU on 29th March 2019, with a new trade agreement combining the best of all worlds

If We Differ, We Differ For Good

We see our EU membership as the completion of the political and economic success story of modern Slovakia, and there is no better alternative for us than a functioning, strong and successful European Union. But unity does not mean uniformity, and we freely express our views, whether it comes to migration or enlargement policies

We Have Great Expectations Of Serbia

Serbia is very important to the EBRD and to me, as President. I believe it is one of our benchmark relationships. Provided that reforms continue, I believe there is potential to increase EBRD investments in Serbia and to make it one of our top five investment destinations

Peace and Development – The Best Cure For Terrorism

Every European country, including Switzerland, realises just how fragile the values that we all share and cherish are, such as peace, democracy, freedom and stability. At the same time, we should not allow ourselves to fall into a state of anxiety, not only because fear is a bad advisor, but also because the terrorists’ goal is precisely to cause terror and weaken our confidence, says Johann Schneider-Ammann, President of the Swiss Confederation

Brexit Could Make The EU Stronger

I am not convinced that the prospects for enlargement for countries that already have European perspectives or membership agreements are necessarily less likely. I don't think it is any worse for those countries today than it was before the referendum in the UK. The only way to make things worse is to let Euro-sceptics or nationalists, here in Serbia, use Brexit to discredit the EU

A Closer EU Will Be Our Response To Brexit

Six decades of EU integration have brought enormous benefits to EU citizens. These benefits now often seem be taken so much for granted that the long arduous path to reach it is ignored. Reversing common policies into national ones would prove to be very costly in many respects – says Ambassador Leo D’aes.
