STATE OF THE UNION 2022


 Every September, the President of the European Commission comes to the European Parliament to discuss with MEPs what the Commission has done over the past year, what it intends to do in the coming year and its vision for the future. This is known as the State of the European Union debate or SOTEU.

Following the Commission President's presentation, MEPs, as the elected representatives of EU citizens, hold the Commission to account and scrutinise its work to make sure that the key concerns of Europeans are being addressed.

The State of the EU debate influences the Commission's work programme for the coming year.

Digital Identity Wallet will be technologically neutral. It will be mandatory for our MS but voluntary for our people. It will not replace already existing identification tools. Citizens will have the choice to continue using identification tools that are currently working well.
