The Presidency's ProgrammeOn this page you can download the following two programmes of the Council of the European Union:
The multi-annual strategic programme is the Council's first three-year strategic programme. It covers the period from 2004 to 2006 and has been adopted by the European Council. It has been prepared by the six presidencies ( Ireland, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, the United Kingdom, Austria and Finland) which, in turn, will assume stewardship for the Council over that period. They consider themselves collectively responsible for seeing that the Council delivers on its agreed priorities up to 2006, efficiently and on time.
The Council's annual operational programme for 2005 has been elaborated jointly by the Luxembourg and United Kingdom Presidencies. It sets out the main work which these two Presidencies will carry out during 2005.
