MBB Policy Executive Mark Seychell, during a visit sponsored by the European Parliament Information Office in Malta to the European Parliament, covered a number of sessions hosted by the Transport and Tourism (TRAN), Legal Affairs (JURI) and Internal Market (IMCO) committees.
During the TRAN committee session, MEP Miltiadis Kyrkos presented a draft report entitled ‘Towards an integrated approach to cultural heritage for Europe’, which supported the creation of transnational cultural tourism products which reflect common European heritage and values. The JURI and IMCO committees, on the other hand, discussed the proposed directive on ‘single-member private limited liability companies’ which is meant to facilitate any cross-border activity that takes place between companies. This would require EU Member States to provide a legal system for a national company law form that would follow a harmonised set of rules, called ‘Societas Unius Personae’ (SUP) in all the Member States. Maltese MEP Marlene Mizzi was rapporteur on this dossier for IMCO.
