Currently, the Navarre Permanent Office to the European Union has the mission of representing, defending and promoting the interests of the autonomous region before European Union institutions. Its main objective is to make it easier for the foral government to open up to Europe and do the same for companies, SMEs, public corporations, technology centres, chambers of commerce, universities, municipal governments, associations, NGOs and, in short, all of Navarran society. The Office’s team is made up of two people with several interns assisting each year.
