REVES/RTES: Joint letter to President Juncker and Commissioners Bienkowska, Hill, Thyssen

In a joint letter addressed to Jean-Claude Juncker, president of the European Commission, Elzbieta Bienkowska (Commissioner for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs), Jonathan Hill (Commissioner for Financial Stability, Financial Services and Capital Markets Union) and Marianne Thyssen (Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion), REVES and the Réseau des Collectivités Territoriales pour une Economie Solidaire (RTES) expressed their concerns related to the lack, in the work programme of the European Commission, of initiatives concerning the social economy.

They invited the European Commission to continue with and amplify the different initiatives taken in recent years with a view to promote the social economy. The networks also expressed their hope for a closer cooperation between the European Commission and local and regional governments on this topic.
