Last week, eBay's General Counsel, Marie Oh Huber, and Cathy Foster, Vice-President Global Government Relations, welcomed a delegation of the European Parliament's Internal Market Committee on a visit to California at eBay's Global Headquarters in San Jose. eBay's Chief Financial Officer, Steve Priest gave introductory remarks, highlighting eBay's commitment to providing a safe and trusted environment for our users in Europe and all around the world.
We also spoke about important eBay initiatives such as the VeRO program and the Regulatory Portal, and stressed the importance of cooperation with all stakeholders and authorities to keep illegal products off our platform.
Lastly, this visit was an opportunity to share the vibrancy of eBay's user community and of their inventory. We expressed to policymakers the need for legislation balanced and fit to empower small businesses and the circular economy in Europe.
We thank the delegation for taking the time to visit eBay's headquarters and we look forward to continuing this constructive dialogue with them and all other European policymakers.
