Having participated in the accession negotiations of her native country, Meglena Mihova brings a deep insight in the role and functioning of the EU Member States, the deal making among them, and the resulting challenges and opportunities for business.
Since joining EPPA, Meglena works on the interplay between legal design and implementation of regulations and the wider political and economic context. Her preferred fields of work are still trade and the management of the complex government-business preparation processes in association or accession candidate countries. Highly technical rules underpin global trade in every business sector, they result from often highly charged political negotiations requiring analytical insight in the drivers in governments defining the Commission mandates to negotiate trade agreements. To identify these early on can make a change to the bottom-line for years to come.
