EES EU Live (12/2023) - The Digital Senators' Briefing
Video Live Talk with Dr. Ingo Friedrich, President of the European Economic Senate (EES), on current European topics.
Presentation of the results of our Entrepreneur Day in Brussels last Wednesday, 29.11.2023.
Michael JAEGER, President of the Taxpayers Association of Europe (TAE), Dr Horst HEITZ, Executive Director of SME Europe, and President Dr Ingo FRIEDRICH, will report on the latest background discussions and developments from Brussels. Among other things, the TAE's new position paper will also be presented.
The aim is to develop a joint position paper with you for the European elections based on the results of our Entrepreneurs' Day, which will then be addressed to politicians as our demands.
The European Union is perhaps facing its greatest challenge since its foundation. It still has to deal with the aftermath of the financial crisis and the economic consequences of the coronavirus pandemic, while at the same time striving for a huge green and digital transformation of society. Russia took advantage of this challenging situation in Europe with its invasion of Ukraine. A naive security policy shows us very clearly the weaknesses of previous European policy in the most painful way and is a wake-up call that strong democracies also need a strong foundation - in both military and economic terms with a clear focus on values.
In this context, it is important to position ourselves now ahead of the 2024 European elections and to proactively address the interests and demands of the economy.
Welcome and Introduction
