Brussels, 5 August 2019

These are the best results since the June 2014 Eurobarometer survey conducted before the Juncker Commission took office.
Trust in the EU is at its highest level since 2014 and remains higher than trust in national governments or parliaments.
Yet the figures show that in the last 12 years, trust in the EU has dropped from 52% down to 44%.
France, Greece and the UK are the leading countries with the LEAST Trust in the European Union.
Lithuania, Denmark and Estonia are the leading countries with the GREATEST Trust in the European Union.
