The Section for Single Market, Production and Consumption of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) will organise a Public Hearing "Towards legal, safe and regulated online gambling: utopia or reality?" in the context of drafting the opinion on the Commission Communication on "Towards a comprehensive European framework for online gambling [COM(2012) 596 final]" on 9 April 2013.
The aim of this hearing is to discuss the preliminary draft EESC opinion on the Commission’s Communication, as well as to hear the view of stakeholders and interested parties, especially from the lotteries, the gambling sector, the sport industry, but also from the regulators and Europol, all of which are particularly concerned by this issue.
