Debate held at the plenary session of the European Parliament on 17 April 2019 with Latvia's Prime Minister Krišjānis Kariņš, as part of a series of debates with leaders of EU Member States on the future of Europe.
Mr Karins suggested the European Union (EU) should focus on four main fields of action: completing the single market, controlling external borders, undertaking a clever transition towards clean energy and boosting security. The Latvian Prime Minister called on EU stakeholders not to fight populism, but rather to address the roots of people's dissatisfaction.
