This was the key message that Ralf Resch, General Secretary of CEEP, presented at the Macro Economic Dialogue at political level meeting taking place today in Brussels. The meeting was primarily devoted to the current economic situation and how to restore employment and growth.

In his intervention, Mr Resch emphasised that the crisis has accelerated efforts to strengthen the EU’s economic governance. CEEP welcomes this and the fact that macro-economic developments have gained greater prominence.

Mr Resch finally stated that there is no easy way out of the current crisis and that the full spectrum of possible measures should be explored. He underlined that “although nobody challenges the necessity to drive down public debt, cutting the budgets must reflect the priorities to work for growth. This is only possible when public services are still able to support the growth path in the future”.
