What is the future of Border Management in Europe?
And how do we fight against organised crime?

Get the answers to these and other questions directly from Commissioner Cecilia Malmström, DG HOME.

Topic of the commissioner's speech will be "Stimulating and protecting economic growth:  the role of EU migration and security policies"

The proper management of national borders is key for businesses and for national security. Political support from the highest levels is crucial to ensure the necessary changes in developing an integrated border management. To help meet these challenges, businesses are encouraged to work alongside each other to develop the most effective solutions.

We are delighted to gather business leaders and high level EU policy and decision makers in a discussion with Cecilia Malmström, EU Commissioner for Home Affairs. The discussion will focus on ‘The future of Border Management in Europe and the fight against organised crime’, covering issues such as the Commission’s border management priorities and Smart Borders in particular, progress with the ISS, measures to combat organised crime and especially seizure of criminal assets, the EU’s opportunities and difficulties in promoting effective and dissuasive criminal sanctions, priorities for the EU CBRN Action Plan and in particular for preparing the EU to deal with bio-terrorist attacks, and the Solidarity clause in the Lisbon Treaty.

Commissioner Malmström will give a keynote speech which will be followed by a moderated Q&A session. Since February 2010, Ms Cecilia Malmström has been European Commissioner in charge of Home Affairs. President Barroso has given her responsibility for EU work on police cooperation, border control, asylum and migration. She is in charge of EU's fight against serious international crime and trafficking. She is also striving for a common asylum and migration policy in Europe; to give the EU a clearer role in the event of a Member State being hit by a catastrophe or a crisis.
