The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) provides consultations to the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament when it comes to the making of decisions. Interests are represented by employers, employees and various non-governmental organisations with the goal of presenting a competent position when it comes to legal acts that are under consideration at the EU. A representative of the LDDK takes part in the employer working group, ensuring expert analysis of business issues and making a contribution toward the better linkage between European policies and the economic, social, and civic situation that exists in Latvia.
