On 10 October 2018, 751 entrepreneurs coming from 28 EU countries will have the opportunity to feel like Members of the European Parliament for one day, sitting in the Brussels’ Hemicycle, debating and voting on political resolutions, just like real MEPs would do!
The concept of the European Parliament of Enterprises (EPE) originated from the consideration that there is a democratic gap between the EU institutions and the main actors of the economic growth which are the entrepreneurs. EU legislators do not take sufficiently into account the entrepreneurs’ concerns. On the other hand, the role and functioning of the European Union is insufficiently known.
The aim of this event is to give the floor to entrepreneurs, the real actors of economic growth in Europe, and to let decision-makers know – through the company’s own voice – what the business community expects from them in the future. Entrepreneurs will have a unique opportunity to debate with the high representatives of the EU Institutions and to provide them with a direct bottom up feedback on EU policies.
During the EPE entrepreneurs will debate and exercise their voting rights on the three key EU issues:
Skills, Trade and the Future of the European Union. These topics are the result of ‘cross-comparison’ between the political priorities put forward by the EU Institutions and EUROCHAMBRES.
The results of the votes will be presented by EUROCHAMBRES to the relevant political interlocutors-representatives from all the EU Institutions.
Indeed a challenge for EUROCHAMBRES and its network of Chambers, but a very exciting one!
