Europe today stands at a crossroads where the principles of free enterprise, fair trade, minimal regulation and small government are crucial to promoting individual freedom, personal prosperity and national growth.
These principles are essential to shaping a dynamic, competitive and prosperous Europe and they are central to the European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the European Parliament.
In the area of enterprise and economic policy, there is a clear need for a balanced approach that promotes entrepreneurship while respecting workers’ rights. This is key to avoiding economic stagnation and fostering a climate in which businesses can flourish and contribute to the overall welfare of society.
Moreover, fostering an environment conducive to business growth and innovation is essential for Europe’s economic recovery and long-term competitiveness. This requires policies that encourage enterprise, support employment and promote entrepreneurship in a way that reflects Europe’s diverse economic landscape.
As members of the ECR Group in the European Parliament, we are committed to actively promoting these principles, not just as a response to opposing views, but as a forward-looking and positive vision for the future of Europe.
- To strengthen a business-friendly environment in Europe that promotes employment and enterprise and actively encourages entrepreneurship.
- To achieve a harmonious balance between the interests of business and the rights of workers, promoting a collaborative rather than a confrontational approach.
- To propose pragmatic, sensible policies that value national sovereignty and practical solutions over ideological rhetoric.
