PICTURE a global Europe - BusinessEurope European election message - A vision for a globally competitive EU in 2019
BusinessEurope on 11 March 2014 published its message to the next European Parliament in advance of the elections to be held in May. Its message ‘Picture a Global Europe’ sets out a vision of the EU in 2019 and calls upon MEPs to help make this vision a reality. The BusinessEurope message refers to a number of key policy areas where Europe should improve its performance: energy, innovation, competitiveness, talent, internal and external trade, financial stability and entrepreneurship. It identifies areas where Europe has fallen behind its global competitors and has the potential to improve its performance with a renewed political effort.
