“Joining forces in public procurement to power investment": High-level conference on transparency and integrity, professionalisation and large infrastructures

Industry, Enterprise and Innovation
Date: Thursday, 07 December 2017

Venue: Hotel Steigenberger  |  City: Bruxelles, Belgium

REGISTRATION

This Conference aims to build a partnership between EU institutions, national and other authorities, and stakeholders to make public procurement work better. It follows the European Commission's recent adoption of a strategic package on public procurement.

The conference will be opened by Commissioner Elżbieta Bieńkowska. A high-level plenary session will be followed by three thematic panels:

  • transparency and integrity
  • professionalisation
  • large infrastructures

The conference will bring together European experts from national ministries and policy-making bodies, EU cities, contracting authorities, EU and international institutions, and the business community.

Background

On 3 October, the European Commission adopted a package of measures focused on the effective uptake of provisions in the public procurement directives to modernise, professionalise and digitalise public procurement practice, while also facilitating investment in large infrastructure projects.

A strong partnership between stakeholders including public authorities at all levels of government, the private sector and civil society is key to the success of these measures. Participants need to share a strong commitment to supporting the implementation of the new rules and work toward seizing the opportunities resulting from the significant share of EU GDP that comes from public spending.
