Lilyana Pavlova, minister responsible for Bulgaria's Presidency of the Council of the EU:
The focus is on young people: we do not want them to be a risk group and potential emigrants but rather capital that we can develop and keep here
Maria Ninova
For the next six months, Bulgaria will be the engine behind the bloc's tasks and agenda, it will combine the roles of a fair mediator, political leader and coordinator. We take this extremely important mission responsibly and we are well-prepared and committed to the national and European cause that is the Presidency of the Council of the EU.
