Representative for EU Affairs, CNC - Communications & Network Consulting AG, Brussels
Director, CEPS - The Centre for European Policy Studies, Brussels Abstract
 Brussels is the regulatory capital of the world . Between 50 and 70 % of national legislation come from Brussels. For corporations that would like to influence legislation it becomes evident that Brussels can not be left aside. Several international corporations have set up offices in the EU to follow the development. The European Parliament has become more and more important in the decision making process. Since the Treaty of Lisbon came into force that position has been magnified. Think tanks like CEPS anticipate the development and provide platforms for testing views and proposals. They have excellent networks where representatives from the European Commission, Council, Parliament, business, NGOs, members states meet to exchange ideas.
