European Economic and Social Comitee and Comitee of Regions

The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) and the Committee of the Regions (CoR) represent the public interest across Europe. The EU consults them whenever it takes significant action.

Both committees give their members from every EU country a voice at EU-level on major public policy issues:

-         EESC - represents various organised interest groups

-         CoR - represents local and regional authorities

I am responsible for the Commission's relations with both bodies. The Commission cooperates closely with them in organising stakeholder forums, open forums and events on topics related to the future of the EU and the everyday life of Europeans.
