European Enterprise Alliance

The Union of Entrepreneurs and Employers undertakes action to create a network of small and medium business organisations in Europe. The European Enterprise Alliance aims to coordinate work on general issues in the SME sector and industry issues discussed on the forum of the European Union.

In our view, the best path to European integration is to protect economic freedoms, in particular, to guarantee equality for small and medium-sized entrepreneurship. Equal rights and a transparent business environment that enable small and medium-sized enterprises to compete with global players constitute the best guarantee for the thoughts of the founding fathers of the EU to be continued, who were convinced that the unification of Europe can only be achieved by building a community of shared interests and increasing prosperity.
