With this meeting, EFA aimed to start the preparation of its General Assembly in 2020, that will be hosted by both SSW and SP.
In Flensburg, EFA enjoyed a working lunch in SSW headquarters and visited “Der Nordschleswiger”, the journal of the German minority in Denmark. EFA could also attend the SP Congress, held in Aabenraa, in which EFA Director Günther Dauwen could address some words to the audience.
During the Congress, the attendees had also the opportunity to debate with Danish Minister of Health Ellen Trane Nørby about the difficulties of the population in Nordschleswig to access healthcare services and the necessity to overcome the lack of Interreg funds for the region.
Together with EFAy Vice-president, Adrián Fuentes, EFA visited the facilities of the venue and accommodation for the 2020 EFA General Assembly and started the discussions of its content and practicalities with SSW and SP.
