EUROPEAN COMMISSION: State of the Union 2023

Webpage released by the European Commission on 08/09/2023 – accessible here.

In December 2019, the von der Leyen Commission set a new and ambitious course towards a greener, more digital and fairer European Union. It has kept the course, delivered on all six political priorities, whilst managing unprecedented crises.

Over the past year, Europeans have weathered an energy crisis, welcomed into their homes millions of Ukrainian refugees in the largest displacement of people since the Second World War, and boosted the economy with unprecedented European investments.

Another year of unprecedented challenges and the EU has risen to the occasion once again.
