BusinessEurope President Emma Marcegaglia and Director General Markus J. Beyrer congratulated Antonio Tajani on his election as President of the European Parliament. European companies strongly believe in the European Union, they want to invest in Europe and generate more growth and jobs. To do so they need a competitive business environment. The European Parliament plays a crucial role in setting the conditions for this framework. Therefore, BusinessEurope and its 40 member federations and companies count on strong cooperation with the newly elected President, the political groups, committees and individual MEPs.
