The President of EUCED - European Economic Interest Grouping (E.E.I.G.), Manuel Pereira, in the capacity of an Interests Representative before the European Parliament, has held several meetings in this institution, including Members of Parliament, as well as of the Institutional Lobby.

At the European Commission, the President of EUCED has conveyed his greetings to the new College of Commissioners, all of them abroad at the time for the Africa Summit in Addis Ababa, and has met with the Cabinet of Commissioner Mrs. Jutta Urpilainen, in charge of the current “International Partnerships”, which includes, namely, the extra-European funding and support instruments, as well as the architecture and implementation of European cooperation and financing plans for the European Union's external development.

On a very pleasant and interesting meeting with Mrs. Diana Montero Melis, a Member of the Cabinet some of the current and important issues of the European Union were debated, in line with the priorities announced by President Ursula von der Leyen, such as the European Green Deal, the Digital Age, the International Cooperation and Sustainable Development and its new instruments, the progress made in EU-Africa relations and the ACP-Partnerships, the definition and the operationalization of the aid and incentive programmes for Africa, Latin and South America and Asia, among others.
