The Lithuanian Presidency of the Council of the European Union comprised six months of intensive work by the Permanent Representatives Committee, working parties and committees, negotiations and discussions at Council meetings – sometimes lasting till dawn, – and efforts to find consensus between Member States and other EU institutions. Issues important for the entire EU were discussed not only in Brussels, Luxembourg, and Strasbourg but also in the Presidency meetings in Vilnius with the participation of high-ranking visitors. Lithuanian culture was extensively introduced in Europe and beyond. Below is the summary of the most important achievements of the semester, facts and numbers about the work carried out in public and in the background.
