Bernard Spitz, Chairman of the International/Europe Cluster

“A stronger voice for the MEDEF in Brussels and overseas.”

This cluster's mission is to forge a stronger role and influence for the MEDEF in Brussels and around the world while making its global presence a key component in its organisation. The International and Europe Cluster is split into two committees, one for Europe and the other focused on multilateral actions. The committee report feedback and demands from members to the cluster and the best ways to meet their needs in Europe and overseas. The cluster has daily interactions with a range of European institutions, multilateral organisations and foreign employer groups and it collaborates with other MEDEF clusters on specific issues.

It includes two committees.

Medef position on Brexit

The French and British economies are intricately linked. Our primary trade surplus is with the

United Kingdom. Around 400 000 French people work in the UK. Every sector, each individual

company, has specific and unique interests regarding Brexit. Everything possible must be done in

the forthcoming negotiation to avoid lessening the quality and the strength of this relationship.

French companies must continue to be able to trade with the UK without supplementary costs or

restrictions. A level playing field must be ensured so that French companies can continue to invest

and create jobs.
