Henri Attends the Opening of the Luxembourg EU Pre-Presidency Conference
Today, Grand Duke Henri was present for the opening session of the Luxembourg EU Pre-Presidency Conference. The Presidency of the Council of the European Union is currently held by Latvia but will transfer to Luxembourg as of July 1st. As a result, a EU Pre-Presidency Conference was being held in Luxembourg. The event was attended by the Grand Duke Henri as well as the Minister for Foreign Affairs Jean Asselborn and State Secretary Marc Hansen. The Presidency role is actually held by an entire government, instead of an individual, and that government is responsible for presiding over the Council of the European Union.
