On 25 September, the Office of the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications (the BEREC Office) will join the initiative of the European Commission Representation in Latvia and the European Parliament Information Office in Latvia to have an Open Day. This will be the first time that anyone interested will be invited to visit the only EU agency located in Latvia. To visit the BEREC Office and participate in the Open Day activities, please register by 23 September.

The BEREC Office provides professional and administrative support to the daily operations of the Body of European Regulators for Electronic Communications and facilitates the exchange of information and best practices among the national regulators for electronic communications in EU member states. Located in Riga, this EU agency assists the BEREC Chair to ensure effective operations of the Board of Regulators and, at its request, to set up Expert Working Groups.

Ensuring better connectivity, affordable prices for all and quality of the electronic communications networks and services in the EU, BEREC has been established to promote effective competition and to contribute to the development and better functioning of the internal market for electronic communications in order to bring greater benefits to consumers and businesses. Moreover, in the coming years, BEREC will have an important role in the implementation of the Single Digital Market in the EU.

‘I would like to invite the public to visit the BEREC Office – the only EU agency based in Latvia – on 25 September. The BEREC office can be reached every day via the BEREC public website and social networks, and we would be delighted to meet you and tell you about our work in person. During the Open Day, the BEREC Office staff will tell and show you what, why and how we work within the EU institutional framework, and as part of the professional support offered by the BEREC Office to BEREC. This opportunity will be especially useful for people with a particular interest in electronic communications and decision-making in the European Union,’ the BEREC Office Administrative Manager László IGNÉCZI said.

The Open Day guests will be able to watch presentations about the work of the BEREC Office and meet its specialists to ask them questions about the nature of the agency’s operations and its impact on the daily life of every EU citizen.

The Open Day public session will take place on Friday, 25 September, from 14:00 until 15:00.
