On 1 January 2011, Hungary took over the rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union. This is Hungary’s first time at the helm and has proposed an ambitious programme outlining several key priorities to meet the EU 2020 objectives. According to the Hungarian presidency website the Hungarian Presidency of the Council of the European Union wishes to build its political agenda around the human factor, focusing on four main topics: growth and employment for preserving the European social model; stronger Europe; citizen friendly Union; enlargement and neighbourhood policy.
