President meets the president of the European Commission

President Čaputová received Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission in the Presidential Palace on Monday 21 June 2021. 

The president of the EC arrived in Slovakia to confirm the EC’s approval of our Recovery Plan. "We are one of the first EU countries to submit a reform plan and have it approved.  Now it is up to us to show how meaningfully we will be able to use the 6.3 billion Euro which will be at our disposal. We also agreed with Ursula von der Leyen on the fact that aside from the importance of economic recovery we also need to focus on democratic values which unite us as a European community and which remain the prerequisite for our cooperation.
