5th Bruges European Business Conference

The fifth Bruges European Business Conference took place on  Wednesday 27 March 2014  at the College of Europe in Bruges. The forthcoming elections to the European Parliament and the entry into office of the new Commission necessitated a fresh debate on how to reverse Europe’s current downturn, raise the prosperity of the European Union and equip it with the right policy instruments for the challenges ahead.
The conference was an occasion for a pre-election debate among prominent European politicians and policy makers on divergent visions for Europe. Follow us on twitter: #5BEBC.
