    One of the primary areas of focus of PwC's engagement with the EU institutions is to address the formulation of policy which directly impacts PwC. In addition, there are occasionally projects where PwC acts as secretariat for business groups, eg for the European Business Initiative on Taxation (registered here: http://ec.europa.eu/transparencyregister/public/consultation/displaylobbyist.do?id=26231733692-35).
