“Future of EU: Social, competitive and sustainable” – was the theme of the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) Inaugural Plenary. “The most pressing challenge is the competitiveness of Europe as the place to invest and doing business,” underlined BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer in the roundtable with the new EESC President Oliver Röpke and the European Commissioner for jobs and social rights Nicolas Schmit, amongst others. “For business, there are three essential priorities that an ambitious EU competitiveness agenda needs to focus on: business-friendly regulation and taxation, competitive access to resources and open markets with equal rules.”
