Picture a Global Europe

The business community’s vision for the EU - Message to the next European Parliament, 2014-2019

Europe has come through five difficult years when crisis management has been top of the political agenda. Because of the crisis, Europe’s politicians have focused internally, working at national and European levels to bring stability and save the Euro. The efforts made in the aftermath of the crisis are starting to pay off but if necessary policy changes are not made, Europe will continue to fall behind in the global economy. BUSINESSEUROPE therefore paints a positive picture of what is possible if the EU takes a different, more outward looking approach to policy-making in the five years ahead.
