Committees

Committees ShutterstockFIC working committees gather members’ representatives eager to engage in analyzing regulatory areas of their interest, initiate advocacy for the improvement of business framework and monitor implementation of laws. Texts of the White Book - FIC platform for advocacy, also result from the committees’ work and expertise. Committees thus represent the very basis of FIC work.

Main activities

  • Establishing platform for fruitful and regular communication with the authorities, which enables early access to the draft legislation as well as first hand information on recently enacted legislation
  • Analysis of regulatory framework and draft legislation and formulation of proposals for their improvement (i.e. Position Papers)
  • Drafting the White Book chapters
  • Share positive practice and experience
  • Promotion of FIC views to the stakeholder community including Government, EU Commission, diplomatic core and international organizations through direct dialogue, participation in meetings and initiatives and organization of meetings and roundtables to support advocacy

Key postulates

  • Established based on the interest of the members and in line with the changes in the business environment
  • Engagement is reserved for FIC members, who do so on a voluntary basis
  • Sectoral committees are established upon demand of the representatives of the specific industry

Organization of the committees

  • The Board of Directors decides upon establishment of each committee and supervises their work
  • Headed by President and Vice President
  • Hold meetings at least once in a quarter
  • The Executive Director coordinates the work of all Working Committees
  • Key goals and activities for achieving them are exposed in Committees’ two-year plans, drafted and approved by members
