Director of the Representation to the EU

Representation of the Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers (ZPP) to the EU represents interests of the Polish enterprise sector. It deals with general matters concerning all enterprises, it also works within sectors present in ZPP. The ZPP representatives in Brussels are responsible for maintaining relations with the most important EU institutions and stakeholders in economic matters.

One of the key areas of their activity is integration and cooperation with other employers' organisations from Central and Eastern Europe. When working with the most important legislative projects (concerning general and sector matters) they will perform together with other entities.
