In relation to the Bulgarian Presidency of the Council of EU, the Bulgarian Chamber of Commerce and Industry is organizing together with EUROCHAMBRES the European Parliament of Enterprises /EPE/.
The concept of the "European Parliament of Enterprises” originated from the consideration that there is a democratic gap between the European institutions and the main actors of economic growth, entrepreneurs and that, consequently, European legislators do not sufficiently take into account entrepreneurs' concerns.
On the other hand, businesses are largely unfamiliar with the role and functioning of the European Union and the significance that the institutions’ decisions can have on their activities and results.
The EPE recreates a parliamentary session and gives the floor to European entrepreneurs. This highlights the “economic democracy” of the Chambers of Commerce and Industry through their representation and their structure.
Entrepreneurs, or Members of the European Parliament of Enterprises (MEPEs), gather for one day and discuss hot topics for the economic development of EU and the region.
The event will welcome: representatives of EUROCHAMBRES, European entrepreneurs, Bulgarian representatives of business circles, Presidents of Regional CCIs in Bulgaria, representatives of Sectorial Associations, representatives of the Association of Bulgarian Employers, members of the Bulgarian Parliament, members of the EU Parliament, members of the Bulgarian Government, representatives of European institutions, diplomats, media etc.
