11th European Business Summit

José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, participated in the 11th European Business Summit entitled "Unlocking Industrial Opportunities". This event was a joint initiative of the Federation of Enterprises of Belgium (FEB-VBO) and BusinessEurope.
The President made the speech "An EU strategy for industrial competitiveness" on this occasion to debate the EC's response to the uncertainty that marked business and industry in Europe. The President notably stressed that by fighting unsustainable public debt, by creating an integrated system of banking supervision and resolution and by pushing Europe's competitiveness agenda, the European economy could be rebalanced.
José Manuel Barroso also pointed out that specific policies and investments in areas that provided a support to the real economy were needed. He mentioned investments in research and innovation and pan-European networks like the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) as important topics on the Commission's agenda.
