The European Commission seeks to establish closer cooperation with Turkey as well as other countries in the region as part of its future goals, a senior EU diplomat said.

Maros Sefcovic, vice-president of the European Commission for Interinstitutional Relations, told reporters during a press conference held in Brussels that there are five main themes that will affect the European Union by 2050: climate change, environmental challenges, digital hyperconnectivity, technological transformation, and pressures on democracy and values.

The official was speaking on the 2021 Strategic Foresight Report which includes the European Union's goals to meet health, food, technological, economic, financial, security, defence and energy needs.
