Who we are:
The Brussels Delegation of The Association of the Veneto Chambers of Commerce was established in 1996 to represent the European interests of the seven Chambers of Commerce, Industry, Crafts and Agriculture of the Veneto Region.
The Delegation provides with operational support its regional stakeholders and contributes to the internationalization of the regional economy thanks to its influence on the activities of political decision-making, both at local and European level.
The close cooperation between our Delegation and the Veneto Region is boosted for the fact that both the headquarters share the same premises in Brussels: this fostered a solid and advantageous relationship which allowed a harmonious collaboration on activities of common interest.
Furthermore, the European role of Unioncamere Veneto is strengthened thanks to Eurosportello Veneto, that coordinates Friend Europe, a consortium that operates since January 2008 as part of the EEN - Enterprise Europe Network - co-financed by DG Enterprise and the European Commission. The consortium represents the interests of many businesses of Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Trentino Alto Adige - South Tyrol.
The role of the Brussels Delegation:
Our main activity is the monitoring of European policies in order to inform our stakeholders about all relevant news. Thanks to this information, the economic operators can identify the most important opportunities and, consequently, choose and develop the best solutions.
The Brussels delegation interacts directly with the European institutions and other relevant actors established in Brussels. This dialogue at the European level is important to take part in European transnational networks, trying to influence EU policies and gain a voice in the European Union, making sure the voice of Veneto to be heard.
European integration has an increasing impact on local and regional issues. As a consequence, the Brussels delegation plays a strategic role gathering and disseminating information.
The Brussels delegation works closely with our head quarter in Venice (especially with the European affairs department - Eurosportello Veneto). They mutually coordinate strategies and actions in order to remain updated about the European and national realities. They both aim to promote Veneto Region and its peculiarities among European actors.
We promote lobbying activities by creating dossiers on priority issues, responding to EU consultations and participating in events and conferences. We support the coordination between all the representatives of the Veneto Region within the EU Institutions (European Parliament, European Commission, Committee of the Regions and European Economic and Social Committee), arranging common strategies in order to assure a solid position of our Region in the EU context.
Activities and tasks:
Technical and Planning Assistance
