“It is in the midst of challenge that #liberalism thrives! It is when pushed from left to right that liberal values punch back. This is a lesson that we have inherited from our liberal founders, those who gathered in 1947 to issue the Oxford liberal Manifesto,” stated LI President, as he addressed almost 1,000 delegates at the Congress Friday morning.
The Congress is open to European liberal politicians, delegates and guests from ALDE Party member parties, individual members, partner associations and affiliated organisations, sponsors, specially invited guests and members of the press. It started on Thursday, December 1, by series of interesting workshops and interesting debates, ranging from "The Future of EU-NATO Cooperation" to "Tackling Cybersecurity Challenges in an Evolving Digital Landscape".
The Congress is attended by a number of Liberal International Bureau members from Europe, including LI President of Honour and ALDE Party President, Hans Van Baalen MEP, who opened the official Ceremony: "Dear friends, we are fighting for liberalism. [...] We need strong Liberal politics, we need to fight for Liberal solutions, rule of law and individual freedoms!"
