Better Regulation Agenda – Better Deal for European Industry and Businesses? A view from the Central European Perspective

EUROPEUM Institute for European Policy is one of the organizers of this breakfast roundtable which will bring together representatives of businesses, governments and EU institutions, to debate about priorities of the EU Better Regulation Agenda in the year ahead while considering interests of the EU Central and Eastern European Member States.

The aim of the roundtable is to debate the current state of better regulation and its future, especially in the light of one year’s anniversary of the Better Regulation Agenda and the Digital Single Market Strategy, that promotes an unified and truly single digital market. EU Council Presidency representatives, policy makers from Visegrad countries, business representatives and other stakeholders will debate in concrete terms what should be the priorities of the better regulation agenda in the year ahead and how it could reflect interests of EU Member States from Central and Eastern Europe.
