EU medtech industry keeps eye on Portuguese treaty moves:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Portuguese presidency of the EU Council is hoping to secure a political agreement on the European Union treaty by mid-October, and is targeting text sign-off by the end of the year. National leaders were due to meet on September 7 with the aim of strengthening the functioning and management of the 27-member EU. This should enable it to become more influential on a global level, politically and economically, and on an industrial level - with obvious repercussions for the medtech industry, among others. The new treaty, as currently proposed, would provide for a permanent president, and, from 2014, would give national parliaments a greater role. The issue remains highly political, and the text has many opponents.
