On 10 November, the Netherlands Chamber of Commerce organised the first 'EU business day'. The objective of this event was to bring Dutch small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and the EU closer together and to enhance mutual understanding.
Mr. Calleja-Crespo, European Commission's Directorate General for Enterprises and Industry Deputy Director General and European SME Envoy participated in a round table.
This was the occasion to underline some of European Commission's priorities for SMEs: access to finance, 'think small first' principle, and innovation.
Mr. Bart Oskam, Managing Director at Eurofiber said: "Mr. Calleja has shown us that SMEs matter and that he is personally committed to them".
