Earlier this year, the EU launched the Conference on the Future of Europe; a once in a generation opportunity for citizens and business to engage and voice their views and suggestions directly through a series of dedicated events organised at local level.
The EU evolved substantially over the last decades, however the integration project is ongoing. Nonetheless, EU member states, stakeholders, and citizens, still have differing views as to what the future role of the EU should be.
Message by MBB President Alison Mizzi
“All aspects of business operations are decided at EU level through the various policies and legislation. There is no doubt that the European Single Market and free trade brought about substantial benefits. The temporary closure of borders in the past year and a half due to the global pandemic reminded us of the cost of non-Europe.
Yet are EU policies and legislations today adequately business friendly or sufficiently ambitious to meet challenges dealing with digitalization, innovation, and the labour market? Do businesses feel that the EU is sensitive and understanding of the problems companies face on a daily basis?
Addressing climate change and building a social Europe are part of our European values, but to what extent and cost to the economy and economic competitiveness?"
The Malta Business Bureau in collaboration with EUROCHAMBRES are organising a business seminar on Thursday 23rd September (09.30-11.30) and will include breakout sessions about the future of the single market and the European economy, the future of environment and sustainability in the EU, and the future of work.
