I have had bilateral meetings with my counterparts from the following countries to date in 2019:
- United Kingdom
I have also met with the European Commissioner for Education and Culture.
These meetings focused on EU education cooperation including European Universities networks and Erasmus+, Brexit issues and preparations and bilateral general education policy cooperation between our countries. I also used these opportunities to express Ireland's gratitude for the continued support of our EU colleagues on Brexit issues including the backstop and North-South cooperation.
