Extracts from the joint press conference by Cecilia Malmström and Antonio Tajani, on more flexible visa rules to boost growth and job creation

50 views

On 1 April 2014, Antonio Tajani, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Industry and Entrepreneurship, and Cecilia Malmström, Member of the EC in charge of Home Affairs, gave a joint press conference on more flexible visa rules to boost growth and job creation, at the European Commission in Brussels, Belgium. The proposals are aimed to seriously shorten and simplify the procedures for those wanting to come to the EU for short stays and induce more cost savings and less bureaucracy, whilst maintaining the level of security. Making the access to the Schengen area easier for legitimate travellers represents a boost in the economic activity and job creation, for instance, in the tourism sector as well as in related activities such as restaurant and transport industries.
