CEMR experts meet with EU Commission on 'public procurement’ and ‘concessions’ directives
On 11 June, members of the expert group on public services met with representatives from the European Commission to exchange on the latest developments regarding the transposition of the ‘public procurement’ and ‘concessions’ directives, which was passed in 2014.

Given their crucial impact on local and regional governments, CEMR has been actively involved in this process. Public procurements indeed constitute more than 15% of the EU GDP and offer strategic solutions to fulfil their public service missions. This naturally led the European Commission to reaffirm its willingness to pursue exchanges and collaboration with the CEMR and its member associations.

Members of the expert group also reported on the TTIP talks and the outook for state aid and VAT rules developments.
