Dear Visitor, welcome to our website,
The Employers' Group (Group I) has 114 members, and is made up of entrepreneurs and representatives of entrepreneur associations working in industry, commerce, services and agriculture in the 27 Member States of the European Union. These are women and men involved in the business world and in touch with the realities of everyday life who are willing to put their experience to use to further the European venture.
Our goal is to promote European integration by supporting the development of our businesses, which play a key role in fostering the prosperity of our societies and in creating jobs.
In an economically difficult climate, the European Economic and Social Committee is the only European institution that brings together business people and people fully engaged in the economic and social life of their home country.
A strong, coherent and dynamic Employers' Group is therefore crucial to making the voice of business heard at European level.
Naturally, the Employers' Group also works closely with the five major European business organisations – BUSINESSEUROPE, CEEP, EUROCHAMBRES, EuroCommerce and UEAPME – to which a large number of our members also belong.
President of the Employers' Group
