On 12 February 2020, members of the Prague Process Secretariat at ICMPD had the pleasure to attend the lecture of Mr. Margaritis Schinas, Vice-President of the European Commission, at the Diplomatic Academy in Vienna.
Outlining the priorities of the new European Commission, Vice-President Schinas highlighted that the main theme for the coming five years would be a threefold ‘transition’ of the EU:
- Transition into ‘Green Europe’, based on the recently announced ‘Green Deal’;
- The Digital Transition, including the introduction of 5G technology and Artificial Intelligence as real game-changers to our way of life;
- Transition into a resilient and cohesive EU, offering security and opportunities to its citizens.
