“The current trade and investment climate in Europe is positive. However, there are many international uncertainties. The challenge now is to find answers to alleviate those risks”, said BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer during the plenary session of the European Business Summit on 23 May in Brussels. European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans, Tata Consultancy CEO N. Ganapathy Subramarian, and the President of the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium, Bernard Gilliot, also joined the debate, which was later completed by Lilyana Pavlova, Minister for the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of the EU. “We are in a phase when it will be decided if we shape globalisation or if others will shape it. In this crucial time we need to show European unity”, Beyrer added.
