A two-day Informal Meeting of High Level Working Group on Competitiveness and Growth members will be held on 15-16 June, 2015 in Riga.
It will bring together high level policy makers, including the Commission, in charge of internal market and industry.
The discussions will formulate guidance for the Commission as it develops the action plan for the third pillar of the Investment Plan for Europe – i.e. overcoming the wide divergences in economic and social levels across EU Member States, and meeting the long-term need to create the right business environment for research, innovation and new technologies projects. Expertise from a competitiveness and growth perspective will be crucial to ensuring that projects supported operate in optimal regulatory and financing frameworks, which remove unnecessary burdens and barriers, especially for SMEs and innovative start-ups, and other users of disruptive technologies.
