As Portugal takes over the presidency of the European Council for the current semester, Dr Augusto Santos Silva, Minister of Foreign Affairs of Portugal, will present his priorities and will answer students’ questions. The discussion will chaired by Enrico Letta, Dean of PSIA.

Over the next months, national recovery and resilience plans will be submitted and approved at the European level. This will kick off the execution of Next Generation EU, the 750-billion euros European recovery plan. Portugal’s presidency will therefore be key to coordinate action in order to recover from the crisis.
