If you’d like to know a little more about the members of the European Economic and Social Committee then you might like to take an espresso with our Vice-President, Anna Maria Darmanin (Malta, Employees’ Group) and her selected guests. Once a week Anna Maria conducts a short thematic interview. The latest is Benedicte Fiederspiel (Danish, Various Interests Group) talking about the Single European Act. Others to date have included Irini Pari (Greek, Employers’ Group) on Your Europe, Your Say, Jillian van Turnhout (Irish, Various Interests Group) on the Citizens Initiative, Laure Batut (French, Employees’ Group) on energy issues and Leila Kurki (Finnish, Employees’ Group) on innovative work places.
