At the end of February, the Alliance for Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) has launched a political campaign in favour of SMEs in Europe. The campaign will be led by MEP Jürgen Creutzmann, Vice-President of the SME Intergroup at the European Parliament.
ALDE underlines in its campaign manifesto that it wants “to boost successful entrepreneurship in Europe and further improve the framework conditions for SMEs to enable them to reach their full potential as the core of a highly competitive social market economy. As part of the implementation of the Small Business Act, the EU has already initiated many important improvements to promote SMEs. However, a lot still remains to be done to reduce bureaucracy, simplify access to financial instruments and improve SMEs' access to European and international markets.”
The manifesto has a particular focus on SME access to finance:
