Delegations are the eyes, ears and voice of the European Commission on the ground in EU Member States. They interact with national authorities, stakeholders and citizens and inform the media and the public about EU policies. Delegations are appointed by the President of the European Commission and are its political representatives in the Member State to which they are sent.
