It is our great pleasure to invite you to the 5th edition of the European Business Summit.
The 5th edition of the European Business Summit, organised on the occasion of 50 years of Europe, will take place on 15 and 16 March 2007 in Brussels.
Ten days before the EU Summit in Berlin, the EBS is the ideal moment to communicate the accomplishments of Europe and the next steps to take, to make it a more competitive and innovative place.
EBS was founded in 2000 as an initiative of the Federation of Enterprises in Belgium (FEB) and the Confederation of European Business (BUSINESSEUROPE). Both federations are strongly committed to the EU growth and jobs agenda and want to contribute to the necessary (economic) reforms in Europe. The 5th EBS is the ideal platform to discuss this.
With the theme “Reform to Perform: Europe is our Business”, EBS wants to play an active role in three D’s: Dialogue, Dynamism and Delivery. The challenge is to exchange views and to move Europe forward from declarations to Delivery. Delivery on the promised and necessary reforms. Reform to Perform for a more Dynamic European Union, today and in the next 50 years.
The Networking Village provides innovative companies, governments and organisations having an interest in EU affairs and investments, with the opportunity to present themselves or products, to attract investors and have a visible impact on the EU decision-making.
The goals of the European Business Summit (EBS) organisation are:
To set up a platform for dialogue between the business world and the architects of the European political scene;
At each summit, to cover in-depth a new ‘hot topic’ linked to current events, through an exchange of views between industry representatives and European political decision-makers;
To enable SMEs to meet political decision-makers face-to-face and to enhance the visibility of these businesses;
To improve companies’ knowledge of European affairs;
To create a climate of dialogue and confidence between these different actors, in order to reinforce the European social and economic model.
