FERMA President’s blog

Welcome to all of the readers of the FERMA Newsletter – I cannot believe that almost a year has passed since our successful Forum in Maastricht!

As President of FERMA, I have enjoyed meeting members of associations in France, Malta, Italy, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Turkey, UK, and shortly in Switzerland and Poland. I made a promise to meet as many associations as I could and I remain committed to visiting all of them at some stage during my two years. Continue reading

No experience yet of working together, which may slow down even more the legislative process;
Previously ignored political groups may emerge and play an important role;
Reaching a majority may be difficult. The absolute majority is 376 out of 751.
