Pierre Gattaz re-elected as President of BUSINESSEUROPE
During its meeting by video conference on 5 June, the Council of Presidents of BusinessEurope unanimously re-elected Pierre Gattaz as President of BusinessEurope for a second mandate of 2 years.
Pierre Gattaz said: "Europe’s successful recovery from the COVID-19 crisis will be the focus of all my attention during the next 2 years. The European Commission has proposed an ambitious recovery plan for the European Union. I support the proposed recovery instrument but the money must be well spent in order to support investment and bring about upward convergence. The Green Deal and the digital transformation need to be key pillars of Europe’s growth strategy, but this strategy needs to go beyond these two pillars. Repairing our Single Market, strengthening key industrial value chains and eco-systems, acting as the champion of rules-based trade and fostering structural reforms in member states is essential to restore growth and employment across our European Union. Prosperity is the basis to invest in social and environmental protection. This fundamental truth will continue to guide BusinessEurope’s actions for the community."
The Council of Presidents of BusinessEurope gathers the presidents and directors general of BusinessEurope's 40 member federations from 35 European countries.
