Geoffroy Roux de Bézieux and his German and Italian counterparts met in Rome to remind the brand new European Commission of the companies’ priorities. A joint declaration signed by the three employers’ organizations was made public after the meeting.

Regarding international trade, MEDEF, BDI and Confindustria want Europe to take on a geopolitical role, because no country in the Union can fight alone against the United States or China.

They also ask that Europe facilitate the investment of companies for the fight against global warming and digitalization.

Finally, they call for a review of the Single Market competition rules.
