The Spanish business offer, from the beginning, their collaboration to the future Government, based on the institutional loyalty, the permanent respect to the Constitution and the Crown and by committing to social dialogue.

CEOE highlights the importance of political stability, moderation, legal certainty and budgetary control, in view of the major challenges and reforms that Spain must undertake to avoid the intensification of the economic slowdown, and to continue generating employment and wealth. A firm engagement to productivity and competitiveness must be made.

In addition, the Confederation wants to emphasize its commitment to the European Union and the values it represents and insists in asking for “more and better Europe” to tackle future and globalization challenges. It is essential to commit to the EU as it is the level were many rules with a direct impact on the daily life of enterprises are decided.
