The presidency of the Council of the European Union is responsible for the functioning of the Council of the European Union, the upper house of the EU legislature. It rotates among the member states of the EUevery six months. The presidency is not an individual, but rather the position is held by a national government. It is sometimes incorrectly referred to as the "president of the European Union". The presidency's function is to chair meetings of the Council, determine its agendas, set a work programme and facilitate dialogue both at Council meetings and with other EU institutions. The presidency is currently (as of July 2018) held by Austria. Three successive presidencies are known as presidency trios. The current trio (2017-18) is made up of Bulgaria (Jan-Jun 2018), Austria (Jul-Dec 2018), and Romania (Jan-Jun 2019).
