Today is Open Doors Day for the European institutions and, as you can see from the image, notwithstanding the fact that it is a Saturday, a large number of the Committee’s staff and its members have turned out early in the morning (the picture was taken at 09.30) in order to prepare to welcome our guests. They were already queueing when our doors opened at 10.00. There is an excellent atmosphere (as always) and I am sure today is going to be a great success. Postcsript: the day was a great success. We welcomed about 3,500 visitors to the Committee.
