Royal Highland Show
The European Parliament Office in Edinburgh was at this year's Royal Highland Show in Edinburgh.
Staff from the EPIO Edinburgh, as well as from the European Commission's Office in Edinburgh, were at the Show to inform Scottish citizens about the work of the EU in supporting agriculture and environmental stewardship. Representatives of the Directorate-General for Agriculture were also present.
The EU stand was extremely successful in raising the profile of the European Parliament and the EU as a whole. The food samples, quizzes and the materials distributed were extremely popular with the public.
The Royal Highland Show attracted 178,659 visitors, many of whom paid a visit to the EU stand.
