Presentation of the programme of activities of the Slovenian Presidency (debate)

  Siegfried Mureşan (PPE). – Madam President, I would like to welcome Prime Minister Janša back to the European Parliament.

The people of Slovenia have achieved so much in the last 30 years. Slovenia joined the European Union, Slovenia was the first member of the new EU Member States to become a member of the euro area, and today Slovenia is a member of the Schengen area. The people of Slovenia enjoy all of the benefits of the European Union. They can choose where they work and where they travel – freely all over the European Union – and the young people of Slovenia can study everywhere in the European Union. More than 25 000 young Slovenians so far, through Erasmus scholarships, have discovered Europe and studied in other Member States of the European Union.

Today, Slovenia is at the heart of all decisions made at European level. Colleagues from Slovenia here in the European Parliament, together with us, are making decisions for the whole European Union and also for the best of Slovenia. In the last months, we have also made decisions together on vaccines which have helped us to overcome the pandemic. Together we have implemented the Recovery and Resilience Facility, which will help modernise electricity and the railways and help tourism in Slovenia. It will help digitise the Slovenian economy, renovate buildings and have many other concrete benefits.

On this note, there is a lot for us to do together in the next months. Good luck to Slovenia for the Presidency in the spirit of EU values.
