Madrid, October 7, 2019.- The president of the Spanish Business Confederation of the Social Economy (CEPES) and 'Social Economy Europe', Juan Antonio Pedreño , stressed the great importance of the announcement made by the candidates for European Commissioners of Employment, Nicolas Schmit ; and Internal Market, Sylvie Goulard, to develop a plan to promote the Social Economy during the next community legislature.

Pedreño valued that “the statements of both candidates for European commissioners represent a firm and decisive commitment to the Social Economy from the community institutions, which place this business model as a key actor to guarantee the welfare state and a sustainable and committed economy” .

The Luxembourgian Nicolas Schmit announced to the European Chamber during his "exam" to European Commissioner for Employment his proposal to develop, in coordination with other commissioners, a plan to promote the Social Economy.

The candidate for European Commissioner for Employment explained the need to exploit the potential of these companies, arguing that if Europe develops a strong social economy, environmental, social, exclusion, poverty, etc. challenges can be better addressed.

Therefore, Schmit proposed to generate a general framework for the promotion of the Social Economy from different fields, not only from employment policies, but also from others related to the internal market, to ensure that this business model “has the same rights” than the rest of companies.

For its part, the aspiring Internal Market police station, Sylvie Goulard, was also in favor of boosting the European Social Economy during her examination of commissioners. In his opinion: "We must support the Social Economy to create a more egalitarian society and leave no one behind."

In the European Union there are 3.2 million companies and Social Economy entities generate 13.6 million jobs and 8% of community GDP.
