At the beginning of a year that brings a series of new legislative regulations for the waste collection system, Business Review proposes for the 20th edition of "Tax & Law" a debate with a focus on the Environment, in particular on the topic of waste management, together with important legislators and stakeholders in this sector.
"Tax & Law: Focus on the Environment" will address ways in which the waste collection system can be improved, with concrete proposals and initiatives both from top officials in the Ministry of Environment and its subordinate government agencies, and from the private sector, represented by major producers and their associations.
The second part of the conference will focus on the legislative changes brought about by the European Commission in 2023 that affect the packaging industry, dialogues in which top officials at European level will take part.
The roundtable event will take place on February 16, 2023, at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bucharest. Seats in the physical audience are limited, please use the form on this page to book your place at the conference (free for waste industry and environmental services professionals).
