Public Dialogue How to thrive in an EU environment

MEA Events 24/09/2015 - 24/09/2015

A public dialogue is being organized by the Office of Dr Miriam Dalli, MEP in collaboration with the Malta Employers’ Association and the General Retailers and Traders Union with the participation of Elzbieta Bienkowska, European Commissioner for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs. 

The event entitled “Maltese micro-enterprises: How to thrive in an EU environment” will take place on 24 September 2015.  Participants and attendees are welcome to join at 1330 for coffee and networking. 

The main focus of the discussion will be the current state of actions and support for SMEs and microenterprises at EU level and its implications on Maltese legislation. We will deal with the completion of the single market for goods and services, on the elimination of trade barriers in Europe, while the Commissioner will be able to give better insight on the ways and means to support start-ups in Europe. The debate will also touch upon supporting family businesses; issues of bureaucracy and better regulation; financing SME and microenterprises projects; industrial relations; aspects of social inclusion and disabled workers in microenterprises and finally, apprenticeship in microenterprises. 

Members are encouraged to actively participate in this event with their questions and interventions in the presence of the Commissioner herself who is looking forward to have access to such first-hand experiences. 

Registration is free but booking is necessary.
