As the composition of the commissions of the newly elected European Parliament became public a few days ago, UEVP would like to emphasize the necessity to reinforce the efforts in the fight against antibiotic resistance at European level. This is one of the key dossiers we will keep working on in the upcoming five years. We were also very glad to see that the Finnish Presidency of the Council of the EU defined animal welfare as one of its priorities for the 6 months to come. We welcome this decision and we will closely follow the initiatives in this area.
