European Commission Plans Cooperation with FIC

On January 16, EC Director for Western Balkans Genoveva Ruiz Calavera conveyed the EC readiness to send experts on the conference on taxation and willingness to promote market surveillance, notably to influence the formation of the Expert Council for Risk Assessment and proper functioning of the national reference laboratories. The letter came as a feedback after FIC visit to Brussels in October and letter to the EC in November in which the joint actions were proposed.

More concretely, the letter by Ruiz Calavera stated that the Directorate General on Taxation and Customs Union TAXUD is willing to send two experts, one on direct taxation and one on VAT, to have presentation at the conference on taxes, which was proposed by FIC after such suggestion by this Directorate during visit to Brussels in 2015. FIC was given the contact for organizing this activity.

Regarding the issues of the Expert Council for Risk Assessment and the functioning of the national reference laboratories, she also conveyed that the EC will pay particular attention to those issues. It was outlined that the NRL are one of the focus priorities set by the Commission’s Annual Report on Serbia under chapter 12. It will be addressed again under the assessment of the Economic Reforms Programme and FIC is invited to provide in-depth opinion on this issue in early February, which will be taken into account when drafting assessment for the ECOFIN Council recommendations, she said. In a letter, EC WB Director expressed gratitude to FIC for cooperation.

FIC Executive Director responded promptly to this message. “We look forward to deepening our cooperation and take on the obligation to follow up on both tax and market surveillance topics”, FIC answers states.
