#FHYearOfChange: What can we expect from the European Commission?

2019 represents the “Year of Change” for the European Union (a new European Parliament, a new political leadership for the European Commission, and the formal departure of the UK as a member of the EU).

With the European elections coming up in 2019, Senior Vice President of Financial Services, Mette Grolleman, encourages others to get engaged now in writing the future of Europe. The 2019 elections will mean a new head of the European Commission. While expectations of more Europe are at the forefront, the Directorates-General will have to figure out what exactly this future Europe will look like.

However, there is no time to wait for the shift to determine new policy agendas. Think pieces and reflection papers are already being drafted and made ready to put onto the new Commissioner’s desk. All of this change leads us to ask, what can we expect from the European Commission and what do you need to do now to prepare?

While the new elections may not be for another year, that doesn’t mean that you can afford to wait to start engaging and influencing. Stay tuned for more insights from the FleishmanHillard team on how you can take hold of this year of change.
