European Employers call for an open, united and strong EU

Business representatives are committed to working for a strong and prosperous EU. The strength of the EU lies in its attractiveness. To further benefit from this “European way of life”, we need a competitive business environment.

These are just some of the main messages emerging from the Political Declaration that the Employers’ Group from European Economic and Social Committee has recently adopted.

The declaration calls for an open economy – with open markets and fair competition. An open economy must be accompanied by an open society that relies on dialogue and good governance. Europe needs enabling and encouraging policies that stimulate creativity, innovation and entrepreneurial spirit.
