Today, ahead of President von der Leyen's State of the Union address on 13 September 2023, the Commission has released an overview of its work and achievements over the past year.
This comprehensive publication describes the EU's actions in response to Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine and our efforts to cut the EU's dependence on Russian fossil fuels, as well as the progress on other Commission's political priorities.

It also contains an overview of the EU's engagement with partners across the world, and its trade agenda in particular, and highlights the initiatives taken to strengthen the pillars of European democracy and build a Union of equality.
