The new Bureau of LYMEC met in Brussels, Belgium the past weekend to set the agenda for the upcoming two years and for some team building activities.

The six areas that will be given priority are:

  • Democracy and structural reform
  • Defence and cyber security
  • Digital market and trade
  • Education and labour market reform
  • Environment, climate change and energy
  • Migration

The Bureau furthermore decided to have digitisation as a cross-cutting theme that feeds into everything else. The areas of priority will be further explained and presented in the Plan of Action 2018-20 that the Bureau will present at the Autumn Congress.
