The annual Conference of the Speakers of EU Parliaments (EUSC) took place in Vienna, on 8-9 April 2019. It was chaired by Mr Wolfgang Sobotka, Speaker of the National Council of Austria, and Mr. Ingo Appé, Speaker of the Federal Council of Austria.
The EUSC gathers Speakers of the Parliaments of the EU Member States and the President of the EP and is the body that has the leading role in interparliamentary relations.
The Conference meets each spring in the country that held the Council Presidency during the 2nd semester of the previous year. The purpose of the Conference is to exchange opinions, information and experiences on topics related to the role of Parliaments and the organisation of parliamentary functions. The Conference also aims to promote research activities and common action with respect to the forms and instruments of interparliamentary cooperation. One of these instruments is the Interparliamentary EU information exchange (IPEX). Usually the EUSC adopts Conclusions, a political text establishing common understanding and ambition on main European questions. The meeting of the Secretaries General of the EU national Parliaments prepares the Conference.
