    Long-term financing - follow-up Adopted References: CESE 2476/2014 - ECO/365 Referral - COM(2014) 168 final Rapporteur: Michael SMYTH (Various interests - GR III / United Kingdom) Co-rapporteur: Vincent FARRUGIA (Employers - GR I / Malta) Plenary Session: 500 - 9 Jul 2014 - 10 Jul 2014

    The decline in working capital lending to SMEs is a chronic form of market failure which demands an appropriate response from EU policymakers. To date this response has not been proportionate to the problem. The challenge remains what to do now and in the short-term. The EESC explores in an own initiative opinion on alternative ways of providing working capital for business.

    Furthermore, with a longer time horizon in mind, the EESC elaborates on solutions to obstacles to sustainable long term finance that need to be overcome.

    Completing EMU - the next European legislature Adopted References: CESE 7057/2013 - ECO/357 Own-initiative Rapporteur: Joost VAN IERSEL and Carmelo CEDRONE Plenary Session: 500 - 9 Jul 2014 - 10 Jul 2014

    The goal of EMU, as a cornerstone in any further development of the EU, is to promote quality of life, prosperity and stability for the European citizen, as in today's globalised context no single European country is able to guarantee its own liberty of action. Besides fiscal discipline, flanking economic and social policies for growth and jobs must be worked out simultaneously by the EU and the Member States. Profound adjustments in economic and structural policies will be necessary to ensure a process of convergence between Member States in a number of areas. Common confidence building must replace mistrust and tensions. Therefore, the EESC calls on the next European legislature to establish urgently a roadmap to tackle the pressing problems. This roadmap would consist of launching a real European plan for growth and employment, completing the missing pillars of EMU, heading towards a more political Europe in the long term, and establishing a communication and simplification strategy on EMU.
