Attila Melegh represented the HES at the recent Visa-Free Europe Coalition meeting in Warsaw on 2 July, which attracted 32 experts and activists from numerous countries.  Iurie Bodrug, Ambassador of Moldova to Poland spoke about the efforts of the country to achieve the visa-free status.

On the other hand, coalition member organisations could launch an information campaign in the Member States with particular attention to the media.
