Welcome message from the Chair of the Conference of Delegations Chairs

Dear Members, partners and friends,

The EU is a world reference for its values and guiding principles and we stand united to defend a peaceful, fair, inclusive and rules-based world order.

As elected representatives, EP Members are committed to make the voice of EU citizens heard internationally, reflecting our values and strategic interests.

And it is through the work of the delegations, that we pursue dialogue with our partners from third-countries, to seek shared prosperity and peace for our citizens, particularly through the reinforcement of Democracy and respect for Human Rights.

I am fully convinced of the important role of parliamentary diplomacy to help shape and pursue the objectives of European external policies with utmost coherence and credibility.

Together with the CDC-Secretariat, we will be working on the pages of this site in order for them to become an increasingly useful tool to find more information about our activities, our mission, our meetings in Brussels and Strasbourg, as well as abroad. We will also provide links to relevant parliamentary resolutions and other background documents on the EP's external dimension.

Even at difficult times when the coronavirus crisis has been curtailing many of our inter-parliamentary encounters, we are continuing to work hand in hand with our partners all over the world, because we are aware that a global pandemic can only be overcome through multilateralism and international cooperation. I hope these pages will demonstrate the significant role that delegations play in linking the European Parliament to the world.

Inmaculada RODRÍGUEZ-PIÑERO
