With the contribution of the LIFE programme of the European Union - LIFE14 ENV/GR/000611
Website of the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the EU is now launched
One of the key communication channels of Slovakia’s Presidency of the Council of the EU – the official website – is now up and running.
Featuring a modern appearance and responsive design, the website offers its visitors a wealth of practical and interesting information. Available in four language versions (Slovak, English, French and German), the website is aimed at media professionals, politicians, state officials, international experts, NGOs, and the general public.
“Each Presidency usually communicates via its website. We’ve taken great care to make sure that our Presidency website is comprehensive, easy to navigate, dynamic, as well as intuitive. We want our website to be the go-to source for all those who are interested in Slovakia’s first Presidency of the Council of the EU" said Slovak Minister of Foreign and European Affairs Miroslav Lajčák.
In addition to the latest news, the website will also provide information on the Presidency’s programme and priorities, budget, as well as the main venues for events organised under the Presidency. It also contains several strong promotional features, such as the "Visit Slovakia" and "Visual Presentation" sections, as well as an interactive form of communication. All of the website’s features will be fully functional as of the day that Slovakia assumes the Presidency – 1 July 2016.
“We want the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the EU to contribute to the country’s promotion abroad. It is important to provide foreign visitors with relevant information and interesting content. The website contains all the essential information about our Presidency and Slovakia” said Ivan Korčok, State Secretary at the Slovak Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and Government Plenipotentiary for the Slovak Presidency of the Council of the EU.
Being the main dynamic part of the website eu2016.sk, the ‘News’ section contains several communication tools, including press releases, statements and infographics. The website will also include image and video galleries. Along with the launching of the website, the accreditation system for journalists to attend Presidency events in Slovakia will also open.
