Aktuell: A Year of Decision for Europe
2019 is a year of great importance for Europe. Britain will leave the EU in March; elections to the European Parliament will be held in May; and in October, new EU Commissioners and a new head of the ECB will take office. The budget for 2021–27 is being negotiated this year, and many important EU bodies and institutions will be reconstituted. In this way, the coming months will significantly impact the course charted by the European ship of state over the next decade.
