DIALOGUE | EU INTEGRATION | CITIES | LEADERSHIP

 

As we close the books for 2014 we conclude that it has once again been a year of transformation. Worldwide events have re-written the agenda, we see trends moving towards more of concern for inter-government relations and the role of local governments as part of decentralisation oriented support. And as a company we have grown in confidence in what we are doing and how we are doing it – and the importance of it. Our Annual Results capture some of what we have seen, experienced and achieved during 2014.
