  • [01] COMMISSIONER CYPRIOT AND POLISH MINISTERS

    The European Commissioner responsible for education and culture Androulla Vassiliou and Cyprus Minister of Education and Culture Andreas Demetriou will hold a meeting in Brussels to discuss future policy priorities.

    According to a press release, Vassiliou and Demetriou will be joined by the Polish Minister of National Education, Katarzyna Hall, and the Director-General of the Danish Ministry of Education, Torben Kornbech Rasmussen. Cyprus, Poland and Denmark will lead the Presidency of the European Union from July 2011 to December 2012.

    The meeting, held at the initiative of Commissioner Vassiliou, is an opportunity for the `trio Presidency`, as it is known, to exchange ideas on their political programme during their period at the helm of the EU.

    ``Good preparation and coordination are key factors for ensuring that we deliver results,`` Commissioner Vassiliou said. ``The Commission will work closely with the Polish-Danish-Cyprus Presidency in all areas of my portfolio. One of our main priorities will be the implementation of the new `Youth on the Move` initiative, aimed at improving learning mobility, employability and social integration. This period will also coincide with crucial discussions on the future EU budget, so it is important that we discuss policy priorities now,`` she added.
