How can we foster the completion of the internal market? How would the strengthening of Economic and Monetary Union (EMU) contribute to ensuring a favourable business environment? What influence will Brexit have on the EU economy? These are just some of the questions that participants will set out to address during the conference entitled ‘The future of the European Union – Employers' perspectives’. The conference is jointly organised by the Employers' Group of the European Economic and Social Committee (ESSC) and the Spanish Confederation of Employers' Organisations (CEOE).
