34th British-Irish Council Summit to be Hosted by Scotland

02 November 2020

The First Minister of Scotland, Rt Hon Nicola Sturgeon MSP, will host the 34th British-Irish Council Summit meeting this week. This is following the decision agreed by all eight Minister Administrations in light of the Covid-19 situation, to postpone the 34th Summit originally scheduled for the middle of this year.  It will be the fifth time the BIC Summit has been hosted by the Scottish Government. The meeting will be attended by leaders and ministers from the Council’s Member Administrations.

The main discussion topic at the summit will be the Economic Recovery from Covid-19. 

Throughout this year, the work of the British Irish Council has continued with officials regularly meeting virtually to progress the work of the Council, and this will be the first Summit to be held virtually.
