Swedish EU Council Presidency site launched

One month ahead of the start Sweden’s Minister for EU affairs, Cecilia Malmström, has launched the web site of the Swedish EU Council Presidency at http://se2009.eu.



As far as I remember, this is the first Council Presidency to use the .eu top level domain, instead of the national one. A nice gesture, and the logo has style.

The pages are available in Swedish, English and French.

Another novelty is that the pages already have more information and interactive features than any Council Presidency I remember long into its term.

However, when I wanted to subscribe to a suitable RSS feed, the promised alternatives failed to show up. Hopefully, these teething problems will be sorted out shortly.

Let us hope that the substantial running of the Council will be a success.
