A new narrative for Europe

“Compared to last year, today a more positive mood is emerging”, BusinessEurope President Emma Marcegaglia said at the opening plenary session of the European Business Summit in Brussels. “We clearly have a lot to do to preserve our ‘European way of life’, but we are more confident in our ability to cope”, she added. “And I see two main reasons for it. One is a more resilient economy, with both business confidence and economic indicators pointing to an improvement. The second is the political situation in Europe and a growing support for the EU among citizens.” Fixing the damage caused by years of blame game will take time. “We must start immediately”, Emma concluded, “there is no time to waste.”
