IAAPA EMEA Government Relations Update
It is my pleasure to serve as your 2020 IAAPA EMEA Government Relations Subcommittee Chair. Our goal is to reach as many member markets as possible and we are pleased to announce that we have the maximum allowance of experts for a regional committee. You can view the full roster here.
As we set our goals for 2020, it would be helpful to hear from you, our members, about your regional priorities for the upcoming year.
Our approach for 2020 is to reach out to as many nation representatives/associations possible in order to find out more about concerns, reasons to act, and governmental challenges.
We also need your help in identifying your priorities and understanding which topic below is most important to you. Please review the list below and let us know which area of focus would be most beneficial for you:
- Skills and employment
- Sustainability (top priority of European Parliament)
Or are any of the European upcoming regulatory developments most affecting you and your market? These include the Package Travel Directive, the Restrictions on Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS), or the redemption machine legislation liberalisation.
There is plenty of governmental work to be done: we need your help to prioritise. Thank you again for your support as IAAPA members.
We look forward to serving you.
