Violeta Bulc at the State of the Union 2017

- Transport

The State of the Union is an annual event for reflection on the European Union. In 2017, under the title Building a People’s Europe, it revolved around the theme of European Citizenship, a multi-faceted topic of acute relevance across all EU Member States. Sessions have dealt with the future of citizenship; direct democracy and populism; the impact of the global refugee emergency on Europe; the financial crisis, the free movement of persons and the labour market; and security, in a broad sense of the word. 

As part of the official calendar marking the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome, this year’s edition of The State of the Union offered a particularly significant occasion for reflection on the past and future of Europe. Video recordings and photos of the two days are available on the official website of The State of the Union.

Violeta Bulc, EU Commissioner for Mobility and Transport, delivered an in-flight address ‘European Citizenship & the Role of Transport in Connecting European Citizens’ on the special flight organised from Brussels to Florence.
