On 28 January, Silvana Koch-Mehrin was speaking at the „Women’s Forum Brussels 2014 – Reshaping trust in Europe with women’s vision“.
Silvana Koch-Mehrin was panellist in the opening session of the on the topic of “European tools to build a competitive economy”.
European Union economic policy is geared towards steady growth and more jobs in the EU. While aiming to stabilize the economy in the short term and increase potential growth in the medium term, it also addresses different longer‐term challenges, such as population ageing and globalization. Which tools (political, technical, legal) exist within the European Union which help foster the economy? Do they correspond to the current economic situation in Europe and its many challenges?
The Women’s Forum Brussels was created to bring together women members of the European Parliament and women from European business, to debate on how trust is being reshaped in Europe. To be held in the European Parliament in Brussels, the event will convene around 150 participants, opinion leaders, from business, politics, NGO, civil society and academia around Europe.
