BusinessEurope - Declaration on the 50th anniversary of the European Union
On 23 January 2007, on the occasion of the launch of its new name, BusinessEurope made public its declaration on the 50th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, as approved by its Council of Presidents in Helsinki on 1 December 2006. Business has always believed in the European project and supports it because of the benefits it brings to society as a whole. BusinessEurope supports a strong European Union capable of actions and able to deliver on reforms. But clearer objectives must be set, stronger focus on priorities must be ensured, and political will and support for these reforms must be more strongly shown. By doing this and progressing on the above actions, we can make a success of a reinvigorated Europe.
