Informal meeting of EU Ministers on diaspora policies – Media Advisory

The Ministry for Romanians Abroad is hosting the Informal meeting of EU ministers on diaspora policies on the 18th of March 2019 at the Palace of Parliament in Bucharest.

Officials from 17 member states (ministers, secretaries of states, ambassadors of Latvia, Croatia, Cyprus, Greece, Lithuania, Malta, Italy, Belgium, Czech Republic, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Poland, Ireland, Hungary, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Germany) would attend at the meeting that puts forward an agenda related to diaspora policies from two main perspectives: integration of EU diaspora in the host countries, as well as strategies aimed at supporting the returning process in the countries of origin.

The key point of this meeting is the exchange of best practices between European leaders and experts from EU countries with large diasporas. The topics will focus on ways in which European countries have established economic and cultural relations with diaspora; the initiatives adopted to support its linguistic and cultural development; the policies that led to the rapid integration of diasporas and policies aimed at supporting the returning process of their citizens in the countries of origin. An important point of this meeting is the presentation and consultation of various national diaspora strategies in countries where such strategy exists.
