Debate on the State of the EU with President Juncker

Speaking at the European Economic and Social Committee Plenary debate on the State of the European Union  on 22 September 2016 with the President of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, and ETUC’s General Secretary, Luca Visentini,  Director General Markus J. Beyrer said  “European companies believe in the future of Europe.  All the challenges facing us (security, migration, climate change, Brexit, growth and employment) have an international dimension. Efficient solution can only be found if we work together at European level and companies are a crucial part of the answer." He added "We fully support the very clear stance that President Juncker took concerning EU trade policy. For decades, trade has brought large benefits to EU companies as well as citizens and should continue to do so.” Photos - Statement
