In his address to the IIEA, Foreign Minister Abela draws comparisons between Ireland and Malta, arguing that our two countries can learn from each other and work together to achieve a more united Europe and a safer world.
The Nordic Baltic grouping could prove to be a natural ally for Ireland in the EU of 27. As Tony Brown writes in this blog, the invitation for Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to attend their meeting on the eve of the European Council summit of 19-20 October is a significant development.
The IIEA is Ireland’s leading European & International Affairs think tank. We are an independent, not-for-profit organisation with charitable status.
Our role is to identify key European and international policy trends, which will inform the work of Ireland’s decision makers and business leaders, and enrich the public debate on Ireland’s role in the EU and on the global stage.
