What do SMEs expect from the future EU SME policy?

In a fast changing economic and societal context, what shape should the EU SME policy take during the next EU political cycle? 

Europe’s 24 million SMEs are one of its biggest assets to address the accelerated pace of economic and societal challenges. At this conference, BusinessEurope will present an EU SME policy action agenda aimed at boosting SME contribution to growth, jobs and the sustainability agenda. To illustrate the ambitious policy approaches needed, the conference will discuss in particular how to develop future-proof regulation in the digital area, how to enable a fair and vibrant platform economy and how to promote SME internationalisation.

Speakers will include CEOs of European SMEs, representatives from the European Commission, European Parliament, the Danish Business Authority and business federations.
