The discussions focussed, amongst others, on the expected "Labour mobility package” and on the "Posting of workers” and Vice-President Verhagen highlighted to the 300 participants (public authorities, EU officials, labour inspectors, employers’ and workers’ representatives) the main FIEC messages on these important topics, namely :

• the request not to revise the existing "Posting” Directive [96/71/EC] and to focus on the implementation of the "Enforcement” directive [2014/067/EC]
• the importance of the involvement of the social partners, in order to identify pragmatic solutions
