Limburg lezingen: Monique Goyens “Are you aware of what Europe has done for consumers?”

Limburg Lezingen - Monique Goyens met Are you aware of what Europe has done for consumers?

Over the last decades Europe has built an ambitious framework to protect its consumers. It is key, in these times of rising populism and Euro-scepticism to acknowledge the benefits Europe has brought to its citizens, not only in terms of free movement, but also in their everyday life of eating food, using cosmetics, cars, toys, and so many other consumer products.

Over Monique Goyens

As director general of BEUC (Bureau Européen des Unions de Consommateurs), Monique represents 43 independent national consumer associations in 31 European countries, acting as a strong consumer voice in Brussels, ensuring that consumer’ interests are given weight in the development of policies and raising the visibility and effectiveness of the consumer movement through lobbying EU institutions and media contacts.

As a consumer expert and advocate, she was member of the EU High-level Expert Group on reforming the structure of the EU banking sector (Liikanen group - 2012) and the EU Resource Efficiency Platform (2012-2014). She is now member of the EU High Level Forum for a Better Functioning Food Supply Chain and a delegate in the Consultative Commission on Industrial Change of the European Economic and Social Committee.

She is an effective member of the Euro Retail Payments Board and recently, she has been appointed in the Advisory Group of the European Commission on the Transatlantic Trade & Investment Partnership (TTIP) as well as in the Advisory Group of Transparency International EU.

In her capacity as BEUC Director General, Monique is currently EU co-chair of the Transatlantic Consumer Dialogue (TACD), a network of EU and US consumer organisations, and she also represents BEUC at Consumers International, the international consumer organisation.
