The Good Lobby will be present at the presentation event of the transparency plan adopted by the Italian Permanent Representation, with regards to its relations with lobbyists.
The Italian Permanent Representation to the European Union has on the first of February adopted a provision which requires its delegates to meet only lobbyists who are registered in the EU Institutions’ transparency register and to publish the meeting agendas on the Representation’s website.
It will be an important occasion to celebrate a great win for transparency in Europe. Achieved thanks to the dialogue between civil society, represented by The Good Lobby, and the Ministry for Foreign Affairs.
The program includes interventions by the Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Manlio Di Stefano, the Permanent Representative to the European Union, Ambassador Maurizio Massari, Prof. Alberto Alemanno and Mr Federico Anghelé, respectively founder and director in Italy of The Good Lobby.
