EU Coordination and International Affairs Service
The remit of the EU Coordination and International Affairs Service includes EU affairs and bilateral and multilateral cooperation. In the area of EU affairs, we coordinate the preparation of positions falling within the remit of the Ministry in the process of adopting legislative proposals and other EU acts. We further coordinate the Ministry’s activities in the EU Agriculture and Fisheries Council, in the Special Committee on Agriculture and in the Permanent Representatives Committee.
We engage in activities of bilateral and regional cooperation with other EU Member States, candidate countries and third countries. In the field of multilateral cooperation, we monitor the activities of the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the World Trade Organisation (WTO). We also cooperate with organisations representing Slovenian national minorities in the neighbouring countries.
Our tasks also include the management of the World Bee Day Task Force.
