An important part of representing interests is participating in consultations and formulating position papers. In this way, we want to ensure that the needs of the FrankfurtRheinMain metropolitan region and its municipalities are included on the Brussels agenda.
For new policy initiatives or when revising existing legislation, the European Commission gives stakeholders and citizens the opportunity to participate through consultation. We regularly take on this task as the European Office.
There are fundamental issues and questions of interest for the FrankfurtRheinMain metropolitan region for which no consultations or consultation procedures exist. In such cases, we as the European Office formulate a position paper which we hand over to the representatives of the relevant institutions.
Our statements and position papers are available only in German. If, however, you would like to discuss ideas or network with us in our task of representing interests, we look forward to hearing from you.
