Tajani: “We need to be united if we want to compete in a globalised world”
Parliament President Antonio Tajani was in Slovenia on 3 March where he opened the new Europe House in Ljubljana with European Commission President, Jean-Claude Juncker. At the opening Tajani said: "We need to strengthen our European identity and sense of belonging. We need to be united if we want to compete at the European level in a globalised world.”

Tajani met Milan Brglez, speaker of the national assembly, as well as Prime Minister Miro Cerar to discuss current challenges. The Parliament President said: "Slovenia is crucial for stability in the region. It is a success story with two to three percent growth and crucial for the future of Europe. The sixtieth anniversary of the Treaty of Rome should not just be a ceremony, but also an occasion to bring the EU closer to its citizens through concrete responses to their concerns."

In a meeting with President Borut Pahor, the two leaders shared perspectives on developments in the region, including the Western Balkans. Tajani concluded his visit with a discussion with students at the University of Ljubljana.
