Joint Statement in the aftermath of the European Elections


Joint Statement of the Presidents of BDA, BDI, CEOE, Confindustria, Lewiatan and MEDEF

After Sunday’s European elections, it is crucial to listen to the message sent by the European citizens. Many of them have expressed their will to shape a new future for Europe.

Yesterday’s vote has been a strong signal of the need for concrete and determined actions. It is no longer time to use Europe as an easy scape-goat, taking the blame for economic difficulties and collective fears for the future. Therefore, we the Presidents of the leading business organisations in France, Germany, Italy, Poland and Spain call upon our governments and the European institutions to take decisive actions to build a strong and globally competitive European Union.

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.
