GPC Market Access Group has launched a dedicated EU presidency unit

in anticipation of the six month UK presidency of the EU in January.



Formed from the London and Brussels offices, the unit will provide

clients with advice on exploiting the opportunities of the

presidency.



The unit will move from country to country as the presidency changes

every six months. Members of the unit will also change, depending on

which state has the presidency, although the Brussels office input will

remain constant.



’The presidency has a lot of power in terms of setting agendas,’ said

Kit Bethell, GPC Market Access group director and unit co-ordinator.



GPC Market Access senior adviser, Michael Berendt, former aide to

European Commissioner Sir Leon Brittan, will work with London-based Ian

Kennedy, head of corporate affairs at Market Access for the duration of

the UK’s presidency of the EU.
