The extent of the attendees is very impressive
The European Business Summit plays a key role in supporting Europe’s large entrepreneurial potential
We have here many direct contacts with political leaders - President Van Rompuy, President Barroso, and a high number of Commissioners.
The event has proven to be a very useful exchange for us to understand more about the needs and concerns of the European business community
Europe needs a sustainable economic game plan to take us into the future
A great opportunity to bring European business leaders together with European officials to really understand the opportunities to drive growth across Europe
The benefit for us is that we meet all the important government officials, our colleagues from other sectors and business leaders
The key topic is really how to gain back competitiveness for Europe
The EBS is a great opportunity for discussing and debating the future of Europe
Europe needs to push innovation and be more open for collaboration with the developing world
Finance is not so much the problem, the issue is one of confidence
The EBS brings together senior policy makers with business from all corners of Europe
The idea of re-industrialisating Europe is truly there
I look forward to next year's European Business Summit, when I hope we'll have the occasion to see real progress from actions taken at European and national level.
