This week I am speaking at a conference on early years development in Budapest, organised by the Hungarian government. The Hungarian government currently hold the presidency of the council of ministers and have set early years development as one of their key priorities for their six months at the helm.
Since I have recently written a report on the subject, the Hungarian government have invited me to talk at the conference and I was very happy to do so. It is great that this subject is being taken so seriously in the EU now. The commission will be releasing a communication on the subject soon and I hope that along with my report and the involvement of the Hungarian presidency, we will be able to forge a new approach to early year’s development across the EU.
