What are the key drivers that are likely to drive the EU’s agenda in the next 5 years? The time to engage is now!
This will be the ‘last-chance’ Commission,” President Juncker told the European Parliament when he took office in 2014. Today, public support for the EU is at its highest level in 35 years. A newly emboldened Commission is once again churning out ambitious legislative proposals. Yet in many areas the EU is still on the defensive. Barring a major surprise, Brexit will become a reality in 2019. Internationally, the liberal democratic order championed by the EU is under severe threat. In 2019 Europe’s voters will elect a new European Parliament, a new European Commission will take office and the European Council will choose its next President.
What will drive their agenda during the new five-year political term?
Emergence of the robot society, clean earth revolution, corporations under fire, internal upheaval, a volatile world. Those are the key drivers we believe are likely to shape the 2019-2024 EU policy agenda.
For companies, trade associations, NGOs, citizens and others who have a stake in what’s ahead, the time to engage is now!
