The Brussels office

The task of the Brussels office is to supervise the interests of Finnish farmers, forest owners and rural entrepreneurs in the European Union. The office ensures that issues and special features concerning Finland and serving the interests of our members are taken into account in the European Union legislation and in international trade agreements. Active participation in Copa-Cogeca, the EU organisation for agricultural producers and co-operatives, and regular contacts with the various EU institutions and other key bodies in Brussels form an important part of the office's activities.

The Nordic forest co-operation body and MTK’s representative in the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) are also part of the organisation’s representation in Brussels.

A joint agent for Nordic forest owners’ organisations represents the forest owners’ interests.
