Grayling has taken a wide, inclusive view of what interest representation and lobbying includes (covering active representation of interests but also monitoring as well as events and press relations linked with the EU political agenda).

We have however excluded from our list of clients those for whom we provided Belgian public relation services or media relations in other countries.
