More reforms are needed to achieve greater economic resilience

Markus J. Beyrer at Macroeconomic Dialogue meeting

“The EU economy continues to gather strength with businesses increasingly confident to make long-term investments and create more jobs,” commented BusinessEurope Director General Markus J. Beyrer at the Macroeconomic Dialogue meeting at political level today. “But raising the EU’s long-term sustainable growth rate means undertaking reforms that can improve competitiveness. In order to achieve greater economic resilience, Member States must work with the EU to complete the single market, deepen EMU and ensure that carefully targeted investment in areas such as skills, infrastructure and R&D make more parts of the EU world class business locations.”

The Macroeconomic Dialogue provides a forum for exchanging views between the European Commission, Council, European Central Bank and social partners.
