Council Rotating EU Presidencies: Decision on revised order

 

 

 

 

On 26 July 2016, the Council adopted a decision establishing a revised order in which the member states will hold the presidency of the Council of the EU until 2030.

Following the UK decision to relinquish the Council presidency in the second half of 2017, the Council decided to bring forward by six months the order of presidencies, starting from 1 July 2017.

It also decided to add Croatia, which was not yet a member state at the time of the original decision, for the period January-June 2020.

The revised order of the presidencies of the Council runs until 2030 (the previous decisión covered only until June 2020) and is set out below:

Regarding the order of presidencies as from 1 January 2031, the Council is required to take a decision before 31 December 2029.
