April 19, 2016 The Dutch EU Council presidency is an opportunity to show Europeans the bicycle as a healthy and sustainable means of transportation with a place of its own in urban mobility.

April 7, 2016 On 6 april 2016 an advisory referendum was held in the Netherlands on the EU-association agreement with Ukraine. The preliminary outcome shows that the required threshold for a valid outcome of a turn-out of 30% or more was reached, with a clear victory for the people who voted against. Tuesday 12 April the final results will be announced, but it is clear that ratification cannot just proceed as if nothing happened. The government will now deliberate on the outcome and consult with the Dutch parliament. Subsequently, the Dutch government will also speak to EU-partners and the government of Ukraine. This process will take time to be able to reach a solution that is acceptable to all parties.
