Our Editorial Board

As part of a constant effort to develop the business and to make sure we are providing content that is useful and relevant to our substantial readership, we are delighted to announce the formation of an Editorial Advisory Board for Government Europa. A range of experts have honoured us by agreeing to work with our editorial team on an ongoing basis to provide guidance, support and advice enabling us to best serve the government community. When we distribute our media, we want to give our readership material that they will find informative, stimulating, educational as well of being of legitimate interest to them in their day to day tasks. Our board members have volunteered their assistance on an unpaid, non-commercial and independent basis in order to further these ideals.
