On November 5 the Executive Board of European Entrepreneurs met online with the European Commission Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis.
European SMEs are asking that the Commission supervises the rolling out of the national EU-React programs to give a targeted, fast and direct support to help companies facing the current crisis, but above all also to help them create new business models for future growth.
The actions of the European Commission must look beyond today’s pandemic, outlining the growth strategies of Europe for the coming decades.
Vice President Dombrovskis agreed that SMEs are the true strength of the European economy and that the pandemic must be contained to save the economy. This meeting, presided by our First Vice-President Maurizio Casasco speaking for the whole Executive Board, was one more way to remember, be inspired by and follow up on the tireless and precious activity of our President Mario Ohoven, suddenly passed away last week.
