• Consumers


    The Consumers theme covers all topics related to the rights of consumers when they buy goods and services in the Single Market. The EESC aims to make sure consumers have the rights and protection they need, and to combat unfair trading practices. We also promote more sustainable consumption patterns, and cooperate with national consumer councils. The annual Consumer Day Conference, held since 1999, is the high point of the calendar.

  • Enterprises and Industry


    The Enterprises and Industry theme covers the EU’s industrial and competition policies, as well as the Single Market, services, small and medium-sized enterprises, social entrepreneurship and the social economy. Research and innovation, which are of major importance for the European recovery, also fall under this heading.
