With the last event of the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council – a conference of Chairpersons of EU parliaments on 6–8 April at the Seimas of the Republic of Lithuania – approaching, on 26–27 January the Secretaries General of EU parliaments will meet in Vilnius.

During a session which will be chaired by Jonas Milerius, Chancellor of the Seimas, the heads of parliaments' administration offices will analyze the Seimas draft programme for the forthcoming conference, and cover the coordination of EU matters in the administration offices of parliaments. The meeting will also focus on the issues of IPEX (Interparliamentary EU Information Exchange) (the IPEX system is dedicated to facilitating interparliamentary cooperation in the EU by allowing parliaments to electronically exchange EU-related information and opinions on parliamentary surveillance).

On 26 January (Sunday, the first day of the event), a session of the parliaments of the Presidency Trio (Cyprus, Lithuania, and Italy) and the Secretaries General of the EP will take place.

On 27 January, the meeting's participants will be welcomed by Speaker of the Seimas, Loreta Graužinienė.

The event’s comprehensive programme and other information are available on the website of the Lithuanian Presidency of the EU Council Parliamentary Dimension and the event page.

The meeting will be live-streamed and broadcast on the TV programme Seimas Live.

On 27 January, Mr Milerius will present the event on the LRT show Labas rytas, Lietuva (7.10 am).
