Securing access to business funding to develop the economy.
The European Commission’s action plan for a Capital Markets Union places corporate finance issues at the heart of the concerns of the European institutions. The need for corporate financing is a major issue in building a dynamic European economy. Large companies are the engine of growth in Europe and it is necessary to preserve their competitiveness by defining a regulatory framework conducive to their development. They would like to see more significant reductions in the administrative burden and the obligations (in particular information requirements) they are subject to. In the context of the Brexit, it is also essential that issues of competitiveness between the EU and third countries are better taken into account.
