On May 16th, the European Commission is hosting the “first targeted stakeholder meeting on investor citizenship and residence schemes in the EU”. Now, representatives from CiviQuo, who will take part in the meeting, are calling on industry participants to share their views with the Commission, to help shape the direction of future policy.
“Now that we have the opportunity to represent the industry at the European Commission’s first stakeholder consultation, we felt that the most logical and responsible thing to do is to enable our network to contribute,” says Yakof Agius, Civiquo’s CEO.
The survey questions, he explains, mirrors the meeting’s agenda, and the results will be presented to the Commission next Thursday.
“With everyone’s support and knowledge of the industry, and by making the most of opportunities like this, we can be successful. To find a way forward that works for service providers, for clients, and for regulators as well as political bodies alike, we need to work together,” he adds.
