I truly believe in Europe and support the initiative of Club Alpbach Lower Austria to foster a forward-looking European dialogue in Austria, based on the anniversary of the Extension of the European Union.
Sebastian Kurz (Bundeskanzler)

„When we prepared the CEE Enlargement in 2004 I was representing Slovakia and cooperating with representatives of the European Union and neighbouring countries. On the occasion of its 15-year anniversary I welcome the opportunity through the Dialog.Format.Niederösterreich to reflect and act together, mainly with the focus on family policy, solidarity among generations and protection of life to ensure better future for our countries and citizens.”
Dr. Anna Záborská (Member of the European Parliament, SK)

„The topic of our Europaforum Wachau 2019 relates to the DIALOG.FORMAT.NIEDERÖSTERREICH. I believe that the discussion to improve our partnerships to our European neighbours is crucial.“
