European Parliament of Enterprises
The European Parliament of Enterprises is organised by EUROCHAMBRES once every two years. The first edition of the event was launched on 14 October 2008 on the occasion of EUROCHAMBRES' 50th anniversary. The concept originated from the consideration that there is a democratic gap between the EU institutions and the main actors of economic growth which are the entrepreneurs. EU legislators do not take sufficiently into account the entrepreneurs' concerns. On the other hand, the role and functioning of the European Union are insufficiently known to businesses.
Over 750 business men and women coming from 45 European countries will have the chance to be Members of the European Parliament for one day, debating and voting on some of the most crucial topics currently at the heart of the political debate in the symbolic location of the Hemicycle of the European Parliament.
