On 7th February, as we mark the 25th anniversary of the Maastricht Treaty, the European Economic and Social Committee turns to political leaders, the European civil society organisations which we represent, and all European citizens, with a call: the call for social and economic solidarity, which is urgently needed across Europe. 25 years ago, Europe was in turmoil: the aftermath of the Cold War; the fall of the Berlin Wall and the reunification of Germany; the path of Eastern European countries to democracy, all shaped the zeitgeist. Yet, on this momentous day in 1992, the 12 nations of the European Communities signed this European Treaty, thus creating the European Union as we know it and its greatest achievement, the single currency.

Apart from its environmental and economic benefits, the circular economy also has social advantages, providing new jobs and new business models.

When the international economic and financial crisis struck, it exposed the structural limitations and contradictions in EMU, depriving the euro of its propensity to attract. The crisis proves that it takes much more than a set of "accountancy" rules such as the stability pact and others, because the underlying problems are not technical but economic and political. Some progress has been made in the past few years by putting in place new rules and mechanisms, notably parts of a Banking Union, but the construction works are far from being completed yet, which contributes to the persisting climate of uncertainty among citizens and business, and hinders the growth potential of the European economy ...

Βάσει της νέας μελέτης που ανατέθηκε από την Ευρωπαϊκή Οικονομική και Κοινωνική Επιτροπή, οι διασυνοριακές υπηρεσίες συμβάλλουν στη δημιουργία νέων θέσεων εργασίας και την τόνωση της οικονομικής ανάπτυξης, ενώ παράλληλα επιφέρουν θετικά αποτελέσματα για όλες τις χώρες της ΕΕ και για τα διάφορα είδη απασχόλησης, τόσο υψηλής έντασης εργασίας όσο και γνώσεων. Στο εν λόγω έγγραφο αποδεικνύεται ότι η αποφυγή αυστηρής ρύθμισης της εσωτερικής αγοράς των διασυνοριακών υπηρεσιών είναι επωφελής για την οικονομία της ΕΕ.

The European economy loses over 2% of productivity per year due to a mismatch of skills, according to a recent study commissioned by the European Economic and Social Committee. This means a loss of 80 eurocents for each hour of work. The situation will get even worse in the future due to demographic trends and ongoing technological developments, if no reforms are undertaken.
