21st Meeting of the PCC SEEE Committee of Ministers

Online, 16 June 2021 - The PCC SEE Committee of Ministers convened for the 21st time in its statutory capacity as the highest PCC SEE decision-making body under the auspices of the Hungarian PCC SEE Chairmanship-in-Office. Authorized representatives from the 12 Contracting Parties exchanged experience and lessons learned on how the COVID-19 pandemic situation has affected their law enforcement authorities, as well as reviewed the recent developments in the field of migration by evaluating the implemented measures assisting the promotion of operational cooperation and support. They further reviewed the state of play towards signing the Protocol amending the PCC Prüm Agreement, following the successful official negotiations in February 2021, which will enable a timely start of automated data exchange in practice.

The meeting was also attended by several PCC SEE Plus Partners, who have substantially contributed to the implementation process over the past years and with whom further synergies continue to be sought and established to the benefit of the PCC SEE family.
