Slovenian presidency

European Union presidency in 2008 will start with Slovenia during the first semester followed by France during the last semester.

Among the main topics of the Slovenian presidency agenda are energy and climate change and the implementation of the new Lisbon cycle for growth and jobs. After the Bali climate conference in December, the Commission is expected
to propose a comprehensive energy and climate change package in January, with a special focus on emissions trading, carbon capture and storage and renewables.

With the Lisbon strategy currently under review, EU leaders will decide on the implementation of the next Lisbon cycle when they meet at the Spring Council 13-14 March in Slovenia.
