Extracts from the press conference by Maroš Šefčovič on Launch of Transparency Portal with Third Party Endorsements
On 7 June 2012, Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Inter-Institutional Relations and Administration, announced the launch of Transparency Portal.
The European Commission launched a new Transparency web portal, making its decision-making processes more open and accessible to citizens than ever before.
The portal acts as a window on the wide range of instruments developed over recent years to make public scrutiny easier, and improve citizens' ability to exercise their rights. It provides quick and direct access to information on: legislation, impact assessments, experts groups and advisory committees, consultations, interest representation and lobbying, access to documents and recipients of EU funds.
