YOUR OFFICE IN BRUSSELS
Between 40 and 50% of the legislation adopted in every EU country is related to the European Union and, in a number of sectors, more than the 80% of the legislation affecting companies originates in Brussels (internal market, import-export, environment, health, consumer protection, amongst others).
A large number of meetings of expert committees, working groups and conferences take place in Brussels every week. You could wonder: why going? Which events and conferences are important? Why should I go if I am not registered in any European Association? Why a permanent presence is needed?
Alonso & Asociados is aware of the growing need for stakeholders to hear and to be heard in the course of the negotiations of EU regulations. Thus, we offer our team and office as it were your own delegation.
