The general priorities of the French Presidency are layed out in the programme prepared jointly by the
three presidencies of France, the Czech Republic and Sweden.
In this respect, the three presidencies will continue the work towards the provision of high quality, reliable and relevant official European statistics taking into account the principles of the European Statistics Code of Practice and user needs. To pursue these objectives, the Presidencies will work actively to enhance the European statistical system and support the legislative and implementation process of the legal environment. The Presidencies will also promote cooperation in the development of systems, tools and processes, in accordance with the possibilities introduced in a strengthened European statistical system. Notwithstanding the needs for new data the Presidencies will focus on priority setting, reduction of burden on respondents and cost-effectiveness.
