Director General Markus J. Beyrer: “We need more Europe!”

“The only way to overcome the current challenges is not less Europe but more Europe”, BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer said at an event on Europe’s role in the world organised by the Federation of Austrian Industries Vorarlberg on 23 November in Lustenau, Austria. He stressed that more European integration and cooperation between EU member states is needed to find solutions for the refugee crisis, terrorism and economic challenges. In the presence of more than 100 representatives from industry, politics and civil society, Beyrer pleaded for faster progress on ongoing free-trade negotiations, the removal of remaining barriers in the single market and reducing energy prices for European households and industrial consumers.
