On Tuesday, 14 May 2013, the European Commission Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry hosted a seminar in the Czech Republic at the Corinthia Hotel in Prague on the issue of late payment and the application of a new European directive to tackle the problem.
This directive is an important legal development for businesses, particularly SMEs, and public authorities in the Czech Republic and across the EU. It puts in place strict time-lines and tough penalties for payment between businesses, and between businesses and public authorities.
The seminar provided participants with an opportunity to learn more about the problem of late payment and the new measures being put in place to address the issue.
It included presentations from: Mr. Jan Michal, Head of the European Commission Representation in Czech Republic; Mr. Edvard Kožušník MEP, Member of the Internal Market and Consumer Protection Committee; Mr. Antti Peltomäki, Deputy Director-General, Deputy Director-General of the Enterprise and Industry Directorate-General; Mr. Petr Kužel, President of the Czech Chamber of Commerce; Ms. Idaira Robayna-Alfonso, Legal Officer, Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry; Mr. Jiří Gaňo, National Expert on Late Payment, Czech Republic; Ms. Viktória Grossová, Managing Director, Intrum Justitia Czech Republic; and Mr. Petr Očko, Director General of EU Funds, Research and Development, Ministry of Industry and Trade.
This campaign is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise & Industry and is part of the European Commission’s on-going commitment to promoting economic growth and European business.
