Message from the Chairman

Dear Colleagues,

Though we are probably heading rapidly toward convergence of national responses to the Coronavirus, we are not there yet, especially as the European Union has extremely limited public health powers. In the meantime, we can only strongly encourage all our members to strictly follow national decrees on the exact extent and nature of work-related interactions.

I know that our President, Liviu Tudor, joins me in reassuring you that EPF continues operating and ensuring that all interactions with the European authorities are maintained by other means than physical meetings (which are no longer possible, the European Institutions having largely switched to home-working).

At any rate, the brunt of the work at the moment consists of digesting the considerable European Green Deal production that the Commission has already released and will doubtless continue releasing and preparing for EPF expansion, all of which we have under control.

Rest assured that we shall be in an excellent position once normal EU operations are restored.

Wishing you all the best,

Alain Duffoux
Chairman of the Managing Committee
