TIME TO LEAD, TIME FOR A GLOBAL EUROPE
THE EU IS A SIGNIFICANT GLOBAL POWER. ONLY UNITED CAN THE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES PLAY A LEADING ROLE ON THE GLOBAL STAGE.
Trade wars have no winners. Europe’s prosperity is based on open markets and rules-based trade. Approximately 31 million EU jobs depend on our exports. In times of unilateral actions that undermine trade rules and the institutions that enforce them, the EU must be the anchor of fairness in international trade.
Global challenges require global answers. The EU must strengthen itself to be able to lead in demonstrating to major partners the benefits of working together rather than against each other.
