Today, [on 21 February 2019], Valeria Ronzitti, CEEP General Secretary, addressed the ‘Civil Society for rEUnaissance’ event organised by the European Economic and Social Committee. At this occasion, Ms Ronzitti has highlighted the key messages for employers and providers of public services and services of general interest:

“Representing providers of public services and SGI, CEEP holds some of the keys to bring answers and propel forward the European project. Our members are active in sectors which are of prime importance for the daily life of our citizens. Without affordable, efficient and effective public services and SGIs, such as education, healthcare or energy, how would the EU society would look like?”

“At a moment when ‘sustainable’ is on everyone’s lips, we need to clearly recognize public services and services of general interest as instrumental for this sustainable future, bringing together environmental, social and economic concerns. And to act accordingly, in order to promote social and territorial cohesion, as well as upwards convergence for citizens and enterprises.”

“Three minutes is a pretty short time to present all our key messages, but CEEP has prepared its ‘Priorities for 2019-2024’, and I will just highlight 5 of the items we brought forward: 

A fair and predictable level-playing field for all SGIs;
An active and living social dialogue;
An attractive investment environment for our infrastructures;
The integration of migrants and refugees;
A European democracy supported by cohesion and subsidiarity.”

“All in all, together with colleagues social partners, we are engaged in contributing to the successes of the European project, convinced that our socio-economic model makes Europe one of the best places in the world to live and work.
