"Businesses are essential to creating prosperity and jobs, but setting one up – and keeping it going – is tough, especially in today’s economic climate" said Vice-President Viviane Reding. "With a growing number of firms facing financial difficulties across Europe, we need to rethink our approach to company insolvencies."
