On 12 July IMCO held a public hearing on the implementation of the Late Payment Directive. The first panel examined business-to-business (B2B) transactions, featuring speakers representing business associations. The second panel focused on public authorities-to-businesses transactions (P2B), with speakers concentrating on problems reported on the ground and on measures that could be employed by public administrations to tackle this issue.

The hearing would also provide input for an IMCO implementation report on the same topic, to be elaborated later this year.
