On Tuesday, January 21 2014, the European Commission Directorate-General for Enterprise and Industry hosted a seminar in Sweden at the European Commission Representation in Stockholm 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 Sweden 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 Pierre Schellekens, Head of the European Commission Representation in Sweden; Mrs Anna Maria Corazza Bildt, Member of the European Parliament; Mr Magnus G. Graner, State Secretary, Ministry of Justice; Ms Carolina Stege, Legal Officer, European Commission - Directorate General for Enterprise and Industry; Ms Danijela Pavic, National expert, Ministry of Justice; Mr Tell Hermanson, Secretary General, ICC Sweden; and Mr Per-Henrik Persson, Managing Director Sweden, Intrum Justitia.
This campaign is funded by the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Enterprise & Industry and is part of the European Commission’s ongoing commitment to promoting economic growth and European business.
