Visit to Brussels Promoted in Media

Visit to Brussels was promoted in media by press announcement of the visit, press release after the visit, as well as series of media appearances. Press announcement before the event was transmitted 21 times while press release after the visit was transmitted 23 times, agency Kliping report stated.

On October 15, FIC Executive Director Ana Tozzi appeared in a radio show ,,U sredistu paznje” at Radio Beograd. It was the media appearance on the occasion of the visit to Brussels and initiated by the Radio Beograd and not previously envisaged by media plan prepared by Pristop agency. In a long appearance FIC was presented as an association with good expertise to assist the country on the path towards the EU as more than 70% of members coming from the EU. Ana Tozzi outlined that the key issues tackled during the visit to Brussels concerned aspects of the business climate with highest potential for impact on the living standard of citizens and improvement of the economy. Fiscal consolidation,  law implementation, importance of public discussion, labour regulation including staff leasing, trade, food safety, e-businesses, inspections and bankruptcy procedures were among issues discussed, with FIC views on the improvement conveyed. FIC Executive Director outlined the importance of law implementation for the accession to the EU, outlining that Brussels is keen to avoid the problems faced in this respect in the past, during the accession of Romania and Bulgaria. She linked insufficient implementation with lack of public discussion and urgent adoption procedures, which is often a situation in Serbia. “What happens if you don’t have thorough consultations on the new legislative solutions? Many questions on the implementation arise after the adoption for the state administration, business and citizens, and to put it simply, you have the problem in practice. This problems is solved by organizing the thorough process of public consultations and debates before the adoption of the new laws”, she said. FIC Executive Director said that in Serbia this problem exists across sectors. She also praised the Government for the positive developments in areas such as the issuing of construction licenses, and also mentioned good signs regarding the conversion process, cadastre process and transport. This was also the occasion to announce the upcoming WB Launch. Transcript of the show can be accessed here below.
