Tuesday 8 October 2013 – 30th Anniversary of the APE


Since the APE was founded in 1983, it has always contributed to strengthen the non-partisan relationships of members of the European Parliament. To celebrate the achievements of our association during the first thirty years of its existence, the APE invited it members to a special anniversary dinner. Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament and proud member of our association, welcomed the guests and underlined the relevance of informal dialogues and good connections between all members of a democratic system to secure that political cleavages do not become personal and divide the society. All in all, the anniversary celebration was a fantastic evening and gave hope that the APE will continue and increase its essential work in the next thirty years to come.
