In this instalment of Ibec Responds, we look at the influence and significance of politics on a European scale, speculate on the composition of the upcoming European Parliament, and examine its potential implications for the business sector.

As the largest and most influential business and employers' organization in Europe, Ibec will be actively campaigning to ensure that candidates in the European elections understand the significant economic and societal contributions made by businesses.

More information on our ‘Electing for Business’ European election campaign is available here.
