Anna Ratyńska becomes a national expert at the European Commission

As of mid-May 2019, Anna Ratyńska, a chief specialist at the European Affairs Unit of the Department of Foreign Affairs, is seconded to the European Commission as a national expert.

The task of seconded national experts is to enable the Commission to benefit from the high level of professional knowledge and experience, in particular in areas where expertise is not readily available - such as electronic communications. National experts carry out their duties solely in the interests of the Commission.
