Building synergies between countries and people
Since its creation in 1974, the EUVP has evolved to reflect the EU’s growing importance in the international arena, expanding its collaboration with the EU delegations in 75 Third Countries. Accordingly, the EUVP has gradually adapted its programme to the EU’s new role on the world stage, that of a stronger and global actor in a multipolar and polycentric world.
Today, the EUVP has an important role to play in this dynamic future and the achievement of common goals, which must be based on deep mutual knowledge and understanding, as well as the sharing of common values.
The challenge for the EUVP is not only to continue to adapt to the ever changing political environment by facilitating direct contact and by serving as a permanent platform between visitors and their contacts within the European institutions, but also, principally indeed, to foster and promote common values. Building synergies between countries and people, based on common values, is the best way for ensuring a peaceful and prosperous future for all.
