EU politics and legislation: what’s at stake for wholesalers?

The EU has just embarked on a new five-year legislature, with a new Parliament and a new Commission. What do these new politicians have in mind for business, and in particular for wholesalers? Commission President von der Leyen has disclosed the key strategic direction for the next five years: “at the heart of our work is the need to address the changes in climate, technology and demography that are transforming our societies and way of life.” Christian Verschueren, head of our major European trade association, and chief lobbyist for the retail and wholesale sector in Brussels, will present the latest insights on why EU politics and legislation matter for wholesalers in Europe.
