Advocacy Task Forces

Advocacy team identifies and responds to issues of concern to the business community that can be resolved by a legislative & regulatory change. Based on members input, we comment and propose new laws, amendments or position papers and advocate them with the representatives of Government, Ministries, Parliament, political parties and policy associations.

Our major past successes:

  • Insolvency Act
  • Commercial Registry reform
  • capping the Social Security Contributions
  • Amendment to Act on Public Procurement (via the Platform for Transparent Public Procurement, which combined the efforts of more than 30 political parties, government offices, or private sector associations to help draft the government approved reforms of the Act on Public Procurement from 2008)
  • Big Bets concept (Czechia can be the leading innovative economy in Europe. Innovation means risk. Czechia has to place big bet on its own talent and capabilities - applied in major investments in cutting-edge technology development & production in the territory of the Czech Republic)
  • Immigration policy (highly qualified workforce, STEM workforce and students)


For the 2023-24 period, we pursue goals in the following areas:

People, Technology, Infrastructure
