The European Union is facing big challenges: unemployment, migration and tough global competition compounded by European’s loss of trust in politics’ ability to deliver solutions. The EPP Group wants to equip the EU with a successful reform agenda for Europe's future that ensures the EU can meet the challenges ahead. Increase in growth and jobs must be supported by efforts to regain the trust of its citizens. Europe is a continent of values and human dignity. We must defend our social model in the face of global competition while meeting the demographic challenge.
