--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

President of the Republic of Cyprus Demetris Christofias has described the assumption of the EU Presidency by Cyprus, in the second half of 2012, as a very important event and an historic challenge.

In a message on the preliminary website of Cyprus’ Presidency of the Council of the EU, launched on Thursday, President Christofias underlines that assuming the EU Presidency in the second half of 2012 for the first time, “is for us, as a new EU member state, a very important event and an historic challenge“.

“One of our main aims as presiding country is to contribute our utmost to the EU efforts to act, through its various policies, as a force generating progress, peace, stability and prosperity on the international stage,” he says.

The preliminary website was launched at a press conference by Government Spokesman Stephanos Stephanou and the Head of Cyprus’ EU Presidency Secretariat Andreas Moleskis. As it was stated at the press conference, a few weeks before Cyprus assumes the Presidency (second half of 2012) the official website will be launched that will cover only Presidency issues.

Your days of free-riding on our backs are long gone. You can, of course, assume your rightful order in the great scheme of things and rejoin us in a democratic, majority-inspired, voice of the people world-representation! :D



Preparations for the Cyprus EU Presidency in full swing

13/08/2010


The Cyprus EU Presidency Secretariat and the Department of Public Administration and Personnel have completed a round of discussions with all Government Ministries and other bodies, for the appointment of Chairpersons of over 130 Working Groups to be established within the framework of the Cyprus European Union (EU) Presidency.

Ministries have submitted the names of candidates expected to chair the Council’s Working Groups. Once selected, these chairpersons and other key personnel involved in the Presidency will undertake a training programme prepared by the Cyprus Academy of Public Administration.

The training is expected to be completed by early 2011, after which, many will assume posts at the Permanent Representation of Cyprus to the EU in Brussels to become acclimatised within the Council of the EU.

Working Groups of the Council of the European Union are contrived of officials from the national administration, which assist the work of the Council.

Contribution to the Common Programme of Priorities of the “Trio Presidency”

In synergy with Government Ministries and other bodies, the Policy and Programme Unit of the Secretariat is finalising the preparation of Cyprus' contribution towards the programme of the Trio Presidency (Poland, Denmark, Cyprus).

The 18-Month programme will be finalised prior to Poland assuming the Presidency on the 1st of July 2011, followed by Denmark the first half of 2012 and Cyprus from July-December 2012.

Cyprus’ contribution is expected to contain over 600 dossiers identifying issues stemming from the preceding Presidency Trio (so-called inherited agenda), as well as those forecast during the 18-Month Common Programme.

All three Member States are expected to have submitted their individual contributions to the programme by September 2010, at which time the General Secretariat of the Council of the EU shall prepare a cohesive draft programme, which will form the basis for ensuing negotiations.

Dr Andreas Molsekis, Head of Cyprus' EU Secretariat, said: “We are extremely pleased with progress made towards finalising Cyprus’ contribution to the Common Programme and we expect to meet our deadlines in good time.”

In parallel to the Common Programme, the Secretariat’s Policy and Programme Unit is currently working with Ministries and government bodies to identify Cyprus' own policy priorities for the Cyprus Six-Month Presidency Programme.

In a series of other preparatory measures the Secretariat is in the process of drafting an official calendar of events, to include all European Council meetings, formal and informal Ministerial meetings as well as meetings of the Political and Security Committee and Permanent Representatives taking place throughout the Presidency.

Note:

Cyprus is assuming the EU Presidency for the first time in the Republic’s history, presenting an historic challenge and an important opportunity as a new member state.

As per the indicative timetable agreed during the Presidency Trio Meeting held in Ayia Napa, April 2010, the contribution of each member state to the 18-Month Common Programme of the Council of the European Union will be submitted to the General Secretariat of the Council by September 2010. The General Secretariat shall prepare a draft programme in close co-operation with the Commission and the President of the European Council, after appropriate consultations. A high level meeting of the Presidency Trio co-ordinators, the General Secretariat and the European Commission is scheduled in April 2011, in order to discuss possible remaining main issues and agree on the final text of the programme.
