ICC seminar on procurement and trade
ICC is set to host a half-day seminar to evaluate the potential consequences of proposed European Commission (EC) regulation on the access of third country goods and services to internal procurement markets, made earlier this year.
Open to all, the event will take place at ICC
headquarters in Paris on 7 November and bring together different perspectives
on the impact of reciprocal access legislation in public utility procurement
markets on global trade. It will focus in particular on ICC’s response to the
proposal, submitted by the ICC Task
Force on Public Procurement in July.
The seminar is being
hosted as part of ICC’s drive to promote discussions and foster further
evaluations of the potential consequences of the proposed changes made on 21
March 2012 and currently awaiting European Parliament and Council approval.
The ICC event will garner the views and
experiences of regulators, businesses, attorneys, academics and international
organizations, both from within and beyond the European Union, on the relevance
and impact of such regulation.
Five panels of experts will discuss the
proposed regulation’s anticipated internal and external effects, making
comparisons with the US experience.
