Nicolai Wammen states:
"The Danish Presidency works hard to ensure that growth and employment stays on the EU agenda. We must seize all opportunities to create growth now and ensure that our ambitions are transformed into concrete initiatives to boost growth and employment. SMEs can play a key role in this regard as they represent a dynamic and flexible part of our economy. I therefore look particularly forward to discussing this issue with the parliamentarians."
