Agriculture & Food
The European Union, the world’s leading food importer, has increased imports by 20 percent in recent years and constitutes a key market of half a billion inhabitants for the products of our clients. The agriculture sector in Europe is currently going through a huge reorganisation process that needs to be anticipated and properly undestood. Through our experience and in-depth knowledge of EU systems as well as through our networks within the EU village, we can help you to promote your interests in the upcoming debates which undoubtedly will have a deep impact on your business and on your industry.
D&D has been assisting clients in the pharmaceutical sector at European level for more than 3 years. Our services and advice have been highly valuable to our clients through the following legislative processes: the pharmaceutical package, the falsified medicines directive, the ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement), as well as the transparency directive etc. We do not only work to guarantee the success of our clients but we are also committed to promote their high technical standards as well as their leadership in the pharmaceutical market. The success of our clients is the guarantee that European patients will have access to affordable quality medicines.
As the European Union has expanded, it took on more responsabilities and had to define its relationships with the rest of the world.
