Who we are

We are the largest political family in Europe, driven by a centre-right political vision.

We are the Group of the European People's Party in the European Parliament.

What we believe in

We believe in people’s individual potential to create the life they want.

We are pro-entrepreneurs, pro-trade, pro-education, pro-research and pro-innovation.  

We create the setting that allows individuals to take the initiative to benefit themselves and society as a whole. We are part of the same team – helping each other, doing whatever it takes, to find solutions to challenges.

We see the European continent as a place where people travel, do business, invest, learn from each other, buy, sell, collaborate and team up. Do you?

Our people

We believe in people that are dynamic, entrepreneurial, talented, self-motivated and dedicated. People who have bright ideas and are motivated to follow their dream.

We believe in people that try out new ideas, take risks, aren’t afraid of failure. People who pick themselves up and keep going till they get there. They adapt, change, learn, reform, grow and create.

We want to help people become successful and to help people when they struggle. We believe in providing a safety net for those who need it and in giving everyone an equal chance to succeed. 

People are our economy. The people of Europe are the largest economy in the world.  Everybody in Europe benefits from the world’s largest market – by way of jobs linked to exports, e-commerce, foreign visitors, investment and competitive pricing. Are you in?

We want our family firms, our small businesses, our innovators, inventors, researchers, scientists and self-employed to be beacons for innovation and excellence across Europe and beyond.

We believe in people. Are you in?
