Transparency in the EU

A further step towards making public the influences on EU decision-making has been taken.

The printed EU Public Affairs Directory of 2009 runs to 576 pages. The number of lobby groups listed is amazing. It can only have grown in the last seven years. Putting the Transparency Register online and searchable is obviously a good thing, and there are promises of more to come. The EU compares well with the UK when it comes to shining a light on lobbyists.
