The First Minister visited Brussels on Monday 28 May. Her visit included a meeting with the European Union's Chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, to discuss the key issues of concern for Scotland as the Brexit negotiations continue.

Following the meeting with Michel Barnier, the First Minister held a series of media interviews and also hosted a round table discussion with representatives from think tanks and the business community in Brussels. The First Minister also officially opened the refurbished and expanded Scotland House Brussels - part of the Scottish Government's network of hubs across Europe with offices now in London, Dublin, Berlin and soon to open in Paris.
