During their Presidency of the EU in July 2004, the Netherlands held a Conference in Rotterdam titled ‘Immigration Services Together in the New Europe’. The Conference was aimed at General Directors of European Immigration Services. During this conference it was concluded that there was added value in face-to-face contact with European counterparts and the General Directors agreed to meet every year. A network was established in order to facilitate practical cooperation. This network was named GDISC: General Directors’ Immigration Services Conference.
National Contact Points Meeting, February 18-19
On the 18th/19th February, we invited all the NCPs to Berne. Participants from Croatia, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Latvia, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Romania, Sweden and one EASO representative took the opportunity to meet the Swiss GDISC Secretariat.
The aim of the Meeting was to ensure good and efficient collaboration with the NCPs who present the basis of cooperation for GDISC with the member states. The meeting therefore focused on getting to know each other, learn about the priorities for the next two years, present the workplan and improve cooperation patterns.
The participants were active and motivated, which the Secretariat highly appreciated. Currently, the Secretariat is working on the follow-up, which especially concerns working structures
