Strengthening relationships between the newer EU member states and the City of London.
Building and maintaining links between the City to the EU
The City of London Programme is a programme lauched in 2003 to strengthen relationships with the newer member states of the EU.
The City of London Programme for financial practitioners, government officials and regulators from the newer Member States of the EU has been running for almost 10 years.
Working in collaboration with businesses based in London as well as Whitehall and the FSA, this is an opportunity provided to those who are excelling in their countries.
Each year we dedicate the programme to financial practitioners, government officials and regulators from different member states.
