UEPC attends FIEC Conference
Today UEPC has attended FIEC's conference on the "Juncker Plan" and "Construction 2020".
Commission President Juncker underlined the importance of having a dialogue with stakeholders from the industry and was committed to creating a level playing field within the construction sector.
Then two debates were held, one on the socio-economic factors of competitiveness, mainly dealing with the question on how to create a level playing field for growth and how the Juncker plan can help SMEs in the construction sector access to finance. The second debate was organized around the topic of circular economy, with Sirpa Pietikäinen asking the industry to come up with ideas and the Commission representative giving an insight into DG Environment's work on the topic of sustainable buldings.
