Individuals and businesses in the EU can only thrive if the economy works for them.
The EU’s unique social market economy allows economies to grow and to reduce poverty and inequality. With Europe on a stable footing, the economy can fully respond to the needs of the EU’s citizens.
Small and medium-sized enterprises are the backbone of the EU’s economy. It is also essential to strengthen them as well as to complete the Capital Markets Union and to deepen the Economic and Monetary Union.
Young people face a difficult start in the labour market but they deserve all possible opportunities to develop their full potential to shape the future of the EU and to thrive in the green and digital transitions.
