Tripartite Social Summit for growth and employment: common press conference by José Manuel Barroso, John Monks, Philippe de Buck and Fredrik Reinfeldt

0 views

On 29 October 2009, Brussels hosted the Tripartite Social Summit where the Heads of State or Government and Ministers for Employment of the Social Troika (Sweden, Spain and Belgium) met with the representatives of the European social partners, to discuss mainly on the impacts of the financial and economic crisis on employment and on the resolution of these impacts. The European Commission was represented by José Manuel Barroso, President of the EC, and Vladimír Špidla, Member of the EC in charge of Employment, Social Affairs and Equal Opportunities. From the social partners there were representatives from ETUC (European Trade Union Confederation), BusinessEurope (private employers), UEAPME (small businesses) and CEEP (public employers). In the press conference after the meeting, José Manuel Barroso said that clearly, now is not the moment to abandon efforts for recovery, but at that time, it will be necessary to implement exit strategies in a coordinated way because the long term consequences of excessive debt for the economy and for employment would be disastrous. His idea for the longer term is to move Europe towards a strong, green, inclusive economy, and he added that the active participation of the European social partners is needed to develop this perspective. Fredrik Reinfeldt, Swedish Prime Minister and President in office of the Council of the EU, Philippe de Buck, General Secretary of BusinessEurope, and John Monks, Secretary General of the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC) also attended the joint press conference.
