CEE vs. EU markets: principle based vs. rule based

"In relation to other European markets the CEE markets are relatively small and diversified. Having said this in my opinion the principle of proportionality has to play an even more important role than in other markets. Being small often means that your voice is not heard in an adequate way which could result in a high risk of unintended consequences. Meaning that on EU level issues might have a neglectable size but have huge consequences on a small market. This brings me automatically to the question of the influence of the CEE region on the EU legislative process", said Michael BRANDSTETTER, EU & International Affairs, VVO - Austrian Insurance Association. more...
