Employers warn that world cohesion in this crisis is essential - the United States (US), the EU and other partners must work together to sanction, seek solutions to massive supply disruptions, and take supportive measures for businesses and their workers. or in helping EU citizens and companies located in the affected areas. "The war has caused a great deal of human misery, but at the same time it has united the whole world, including the business. Thousands of employers across Europe have joined the aid almost immediately, providing humanitarian and financial assistance to people who have to leave their homes for fear of their lives. This act shocked the whole world - employers are worried, horrified and determined to help as much as possible, "emphasizes Miroslav Kiraľvarga, president of NUE.
According to the European employment sector, the EU has confirmed its global strength in recent days and has clearly shown that it stands behind European values. At the same time, employers working in BusinessEurope point out that it is extremely important for the EU and individual Member States to work together to build a more resilient European economy. "We need to clearly reduce the risk of dependence and exposure to unreliable suppliers, but also build coalitions with like-minded partners and diversify our sources of supply. Ensuring the competitiveness of our companies abroad and building new market opportunities will be necessary to support our economic recovery," explains the president of NUE.
According to him, the Union needs, above all, to urgently strengthen the internal energy market and diversify its sources of supply. The Green Deal issue, as well as the accelerated deployment of energy efficiency and renewable energy projects, is an important part of the answer, according to European employers - but it should respect the need to maintain the competitiveness of the European economy. "This requires, in particular, the implementation of realistic energy policies," says Miroslav Kiraľvarga.
"European businesses are united in their commitment to working with EU leaders for peace and prosperity. We must all work together to mitigate the negative effects on the European economy, increase our energy independence and strengthen our defense capabilities. The Union must defend its values and continue to support Ukraine, which has been brutally attacked and attacked only because its citizens want to live in a democracy," European employers conclude.
