Cyprus takes over the rotating EU Presidency

Cyprus takes up the EU Presidency in a context of uncertainty and crisis. Decisive action to conclude policy and legislative processes that will create a more secure future for everyone, within the social and environmental boundaries, is essential for a sustainable future. From regulating financial markets to avoiding excessive speculation on food, ensuring transparency in reporting to reforming European biofuels policy that threatens food security, Cyprus will face many demands but can make a lasting positive impact for Europe and the rest of the world.
