ITRE committee recognises the contribution of cooperatives to the entrepreneurship 2020 action plan

Tuesday, 9 July 2013

The Industry, Research and Energy Committee (ITRE) of the European Parliament adopted today a motion for a resolution on the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan presented by Austrian MEP Paul Rübig (EPP).

Cooperatives Europe welcomes the text adopted today, which underlines how the measures described in the EU Commission’s Action Plan should address all types of businesses, explicitly mentioning cooperative enterprises.

This motion complies with the plurality of business forms, a principle recognised in the funding treaties of the European Union, but which was barely mentioned in the European Commission’s text.
