Meetings with European Commission

CoST recently held meetings with officials of the European Commission to discuss the potential for collaboration. The CoST delegation was joined by representatives of key industry bodies - European International Contractors, European Construction Industry Federation and European Federation of Engineering Consultancy Associations. 

Speaking after the meetings CoST Chairman Chrik Poortman said: “The EC is acutely aware of the need to safeguard its investments in infrastructure both within EU Member States and in low and middle income countries through its development assistance. Whilst it has introduced a range of mechanisms to help achieve that, most officials acknowledge that more needs to be done. We discussed how CoST could potentially form part of those efforts and agreed that further discussions will be held in the coming months.”
