The Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) held its 29th meeting from 3 to 7 July 2017 in Strasbourg.
During this meeting, GRETA adopted final second round reports on Belgium, Ireland and Poland, as well as a final first round report on Greece. These reports will be sent to the authorities concerned and will subsequently be made public, together with eventual final comments by the authorities.
