In May 2008 the European Commission's Network "Ethnic Minority Businesses" published its final report. Apart from some analytical work on ethnic minority businesses the report puts forward a number of recommendations how ethnic minority and migrant businesses could be aided by national governments and support organisations to realise their full potential.

The network was established following the 2003 conference by the European commission and Member States. It consists of national administrators, researchers and representatives from business organisation. Its purpose is the exchange of information and good practices in the field of migrant entrepreneurship/ethnic minority entrepreneurship.
