Good Morning from Portugal: Focus on a New Agenda for Europe

Following the Portuguese Presidency of the Council of the European Union, it will be very important to strengthen Europe's resilience and our citizens' confidence in our health and social care models, promoting a Union based on shared values of solidarity, convergence and cohesion: a Union capable of coordinated actions to recover from a crisis, which is an opportunity for member states to not only promote and strengthen our philosophy of health but also accelerate our digital transition as a driving force for resilience, economic recovery and sustainability. This session will share key highlights from the Portuguese Presidency Summit focusing on health, information, and technology and in particular a summary of the Summit´s ministerial roundtables.
