A European tax as an EU own resource

Public Hearing - Belgium, EESC, Brussels

The EU's own budget resources should be overhauled, giving them a new structure to take account of current economic realities. The current system for funding the EU budget is complicated and lacks clarity for the public. A high-level group on own resources chaired by Mario Monti has been formally established to this end. The Committee wants to revisit the issue of own resources and its broader ramifications, with the stress on a fair competitive environment for Europe's producers. The public hearing organised on Monday, 1 June 2015 at the EESC headquarters in Brussels will be a rare opportunity for stakeholders, politicans and civil society represetatives to discuss this highly sensitive topic.

  • Brussels, Belgium

    Lack of access to finance has been reported as one of the major problems for European companies, in particular SMEs and midcaps.

    The EESC is examining, in an information report, the source of the problems and how to overcome them, and would like to put forward concrete ideas on behalf of organised civil society. A number of practical coordinating and supporting measures also are expected to be identified, related to the provision of information, consultation and guidance for the companies in this field. Financing opportunities from the European Structural and Investment Funds should equally form part of the analysis.

    In this context the EESC will hold a public hearing on Access to finance for SMEs and Midcaps in the period 2014 – 2020 - Opportunities and challenges which will take place at the EESC premises in Brussels on Wednesday, 3 June 2015, starting at 10 a. m.

    Effective transmission and sharing of knowledge, information and skills is crucial to delivering the jobs and growth opportunities that Europe is seeking. By connecting European business and research, businesses will be given fresh opportunities to commercialise the most up-to-date and relevant research findings, with the aim of giving Europe first-mover advantage in the latest technological and non-technological fields. Adding higher education into this mix, businesses will be able to take advantage of a workforce with skills tailored to their needs. Moreover, students will benefit from an education that will make them more attractive to future employers.
