After seven years of being in the EU, Poland is taking over the presidency of the Council of the European Union on July 1 and Peugeot is one of Poland’s EU “presidency partners.”

The Polish presidency fleet will consist of vehicles supplied by Peugeot Polska during the six months of the country’s EU presidency. The cars will be used to transport thousands of delegates to Polish cities like Sopot, Cracow, Poznań, Wrocław and Warsaw for presidency meetings.

“It is with great pride that we announce that the Peugeot Polska range has received top marks from the group responsible for selecting the partners of Poland’s presidency of the EU Council and that Peugeot Polska will be the presidency partner for personal vehicle transport,” said Peugeot Polska Chairman Stefano Casadio (pictured right) during a handing over of the keys ceremony held at the Polish Armed Forces Conference Center.

Mikołaj Dowgielewicz, Poland’s minister for European affairs, said that Peugeot Polska was made a partner supporting the presidency following an open and transparent procedure that saw Peugeot fend off competitors like BMW and Volkswagen.

The keys were handed over in the presence of a delegation of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the French ambassador, the media and representatives of other partnership companies supporting the presidency including PKN Orlen and Scania. The ceremony was held following an agreement to use 117 cars free of charge, including 114 with ecological, fuel-efficient diesel engines and three with electric motors. The agreement was concluded between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Peugeot Polska in December.
