Plenary Session

Europe, the way forward:
a business contribution

2017 marks the 60th anniversary of the Treaty of Rome. This celebration provides the perfect opportunity to reflect on the European Union and the path to be taken in the future; a future that the EU can only embrace through working hand in hand with the driving force of its economy, the business community, together with social partners.

In order to meet this urgent call for dialogue, the European Business Summit 2017 will gather together business leaders, EU and national policymakers, representatives of civil society and research organisations for two days of exchange and intensive debates. A large survey, launched in partnership with McKinsey Global Institute (MGI), will provide a business perspective on Europe’s future.

The European Business Summit (EBS) is Europe's number one business event, attracting over 2000 leading personalities from 60 countries every year.
