                    A series of seminars and live Internet chat
                    sessions will be held in 13 countries around
                    Europe during April and May to gather views from
                    the public as well as the private sector on the
                    European Commission's Green Paper, "Public Sector

                    gathered by government bodies can be used to
                    provide the greatest benefit for citizens and
                    businesses around Europe. 

                    During the events, all interested parties are
                    encouraged to put forward their views on the
                    issues raised in this Green Paper. Comments and
                    questions may be posted in advance of the live
