The Fédération Internationale pour le Droit Européen (FIDE) brings together the European law associations of each Member State. From 20 to 23 May 2020 the biannual congress of FIDE will be held in The Hague (www.fide2020.eu). Welcome addresses of the FIDE-congress 2020 shall be made by Frans Timmermans, Vice President of the European Commission, Koen Lenaerts, President of the Court of Justice of the European Union and Marc van der Woude, President of the General Court of the European Union.
We feel privileged to contribute materially to one of the main topics subject to debate at the FIDE-congress 2020, i.e. "National Courts and the Enforcement of EU Law", more specifically the national report on the system of preliminary references between the Court of Justice of the European Union on the one hand and Member State courts on the other. Furthermore, we are deeply honored that Corinna Wissels, President of FIDE 2020 requested our small boutique on Competition & Food Safety to support this prestigious and leading event on Union Iaw. Given the unparalleled quality of the participants it is self-evident that we are more than happy to meet this honorable request and to also contribute financially to the success of FIDE 2020.
