Testimonials and why clients like to work with us

“Angel Rebollo, from his company ARPA (EU Affairs and Communications) is a key reference to understand the operating mechanisms of the European Union and its processes, promotion of projects and strategic lines of investment.

Jose Antonio Ondiviela, Director for Western Europe Industry for Microsoft Cities and Regions

“For the last 20 years, I have been working in advocating for Migraine. Not an easy one!. We’ve tried to be listened but understood by MEPs and many EU authorities and representatives to improve the life of those living with Migraine. Specially if you suffer it in a severe way and believe me, your days can become a nightmare fighting against all the symptoms we have and your plans will be completely conditioned by your pain.
We have tried to be heard coming every year and knocking the door of politicians by our own, by our personal contacts and through independent advisors who have tried their way.

It’s only when we met ARPA and it’s committed team run by Angel Rebollo when we have finally have a real impact on EU legislation, succeeded to send amendments to coming regulations, to include Neurological disorders and Migraine in some of the official documents and to organize relevant meetings at the EU institutions.

Their interest for each of the topics and their dedication to our cause have been remarkable. Also their strategic guidance and tailored approach made all the difference.
Finally, EMHA found in ARPA the partner we were looking for to improve the life of at least, the next generations.”

Elena Ruiz de la Torre, EMHA Executive Director

“Partnering with ARPA was a game-changer for our government relations efforts. Their team’s extensive network and strong relationships with policymakers opened doors that were previously closed to us. Their comprehensive understanding of EU policy issues and their ability to present our case convincingly was impressive. Working with ARPA gave us a competitive edge, and we are grateful for their dedicated support.”
