This page is also available in


The future Belgian presidency of the Council of the European Union asked the EESC to provide their insights on the rethinking of the internal market in light of the acceleration of the Union’s twin transitions towards a green and digital economy and on crafting a European Industrial Strategy that positions industries as the backbone of Europe's economy. The focus should be on maintaining a manageable regulatory burden on businesses, especially small to medium enterprises. This is particularly important in light of our ambition to transition towards a greener economy.
