    Goals / remit

The objective of the Association is:

• To bring together national professional associations of European companies and employers, and to maintain and develop links of solidarity and cooperation between them;
• To study, encourage and propose any action which may contribute to the lasting development of companies in Europe;
• To identify appropriate means for promoting economic and social progress, and to strengthen Europe’s competitiveness;
• To participate, on the basis of a mandate given by the statutory bodies, in the dialogue between the social partners provided for in the Treaty establishing the European Community.

In the framework of realisation of this objective, the Association promotes the common professional interests of the firms represented by its members and disseminates their ideas, in particular in the economic, social, environmental, technical, scientific, fiscal, legal and external relations fields.

To this end, its task is to represent its member organisations as a whole, notably with regards to the institutions of the European Communities, and to act so that its member organisations coordinate their European policies.
