Europe Day: celebrating the EU's accomplishments
Release Date: 09 May 2017
We’re celebrating Europe Day today and that is a great opportunity to remind ourselves of our successes over the last years and decades. There is peace, of course. And that’s a big success. But there’s much more. Economically we are doing very well in the European Union. In terms of global peace, we achieved the Iran deal. And a deal on climate change in Paris, behind which the European Union was the driving force. So we can be proud of what we, as Europeans, have achieved.
