European Parliament recognises the contribution of cooperatives to the entrepreneurship 2020 action plan | CULTURE, HUMANITÉS ET INNOVATION |

The European Parliament adopted today a report on the Entrepreneurship 2020 Action Plan presented by Austrian MEP Paul Rübig (EPP).

Cooperatives Europe welcomes the report adopted today, which underlines how the measures described in the EU Commission’s Action Plan should address all types of businesses, explicitly mentioning cooperative enterprises.

This report complies with the plurality of business forms, a principle recognised in the funding treaties of the European Union, but which was barely mentioned in the European Commission’s text.
