The European Parliament concluded its year of presidency by organizing the 15th plenary session of the PA-UfM and the 6th Summit of Speakers in Strasbourg. The two meetings were preceded by the meetings of the Bureau and the enlarged Bureau. All members expressed their commitment to enabling the Permanent Secretariat of Rome to become operational as soon as possible. To this end, an amendment of Article 15 of the Rules of Procedure of the Assembly, the definition of the mandate of the Secretariat and the signing of the Headquarters Agreement were approved. The Italian Parliament has expressed its willingness to support the Secretariat in this initial phase, with the appointment of two officials as co-Secretaries-General ad interim.
