Transparency and better regulation in the EU

Hosted by Sajjad Karim MEP (ECR, UK)
Thursday 6 December 2018 | 08:00 to 09:30 European Parliament Members' Salon

SEAP, the Society of European Affairs Professionals, and the Parliament Magazine will be holding a parliamentary breakfast discussion on transparency and better regulation in the EU on Thursday 6 December. This event will focus on the pressing need of improvements of transparency at all levels within the European Union institutions and bodies.

This discussion will highlight the importance to the EU business sector of an effective and robust transparency system operating within the EU institutions. It is timed to coincide with the progress/conclusion of the negotiations between the three EU institutions on the introduction of a mandatory transparency register and will seek to provide a tangible illustration of the commitment of EU business to transparent lobbying practices.

The event also aims to provide a platform for companies/organisations to communicate their support for the EU institutional efforts to advance the EU lobbying system.

Our confirmed speakers are: 

  • Wes Himes, President, SEAP
  • Sajjad Karim MEP, ECR, UK
  • Antoine Colombani, Member of Cabinet for Better Regulation, Interinstitutional Relations, the Rule of Law and the Charter of Fundamental Rights (First Vice-President, Commissioner Frans Timmermans)
  • Ben Townsend, Vice President EU Affairs, JTI
  • Stefano Marmo, Senior Policy Adviser, AmCham EU
