    The revised SBA for Europe marks a decisive new stage in the political recognition of SMEs and above all of micro-enterprises. This EESC opinion recommends that the European institutions, Member States and the regions adopt it as the basis for their SMEs policies as well as for their economic and industrial policies. It insists on recognising the SBA's "Think Small First" principle when drafting legislation for SMEs. The EESC notes that the SBA will not succeed unless a genuine "multi-stakeholder and multilevel governance partnership" is established where economic and social partners and all representative public and private stakeholders are involved in political discussions concerning SMEs.

    EESC opinion: Small Business Act
  • The European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) recommends that Digital Innovation Hubs be reinforced to boost the EU’s innovation capacity as part of the transition to a sustainable future. DIHs provide valuable infrastructure for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that might otherwise struggle to become greener and more digital.  

  • In an own-initiative opinion, the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) recommends promoting the use of hybrid debt to fund SMEs. This would diversify funding sources and reduce reliance on bank loans, while encouraging investment and supporting the Capital Markets Union.

    A debate on challenges and prospects for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in the EU hosted by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) welcomed the measures for SMEs announced in the State of the Union address and discussed EESC proposals to make business transfers easier amid concern over their growing number.

  • The future of retail in city-centres

    Échanger les bonnes pratiques, garantir un financement suffisant et réduire au minimum les formalités administratives: des solutions nécessaires pour revitaliser et moderniser les petits détaillants, qui ont été débattues lors de la réunion de la catégorie «PME, artisanat et entreprises familiales» du CESE. Le 26 février dernier, des associations professionnelles et une représentante de la direction générale du marché intérieur, de l’industrie, de l’entrepreneuriat et des PME de la Commission européenne se sont entretenues avec des membres de ladite catégorie. L’objectif de la discussion était d’examiner les résultats de l’étude sur «L’avenir de la vente au détail dans les centres-villes», ainsi que les priorités des PME européennes de vente au détail.

  • Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) requires more than political commitment, says the European Economic and Social Committee. Increased investment, especially by the private sector, is needed to address current economic, social and environmental challenges. The Committee therefore advises the EU and its Member States to adjust their investment and tax policies to enhance growth prospects, and thereby private sector contributions, to accomplishing the SDGs.
