The recent questions around the Euro have revealed the fragility of a monetary construction which is not based on common legal foundations: it is important to consolidate the Eurozone, to give it meaning and a future, based on a unified system of business law, the bond between companies and a vector of convergence.
In the framework of the enhanced cooperation which has been enabled by the European Treaties, the implementation of a European business code, on the political momentum of the major countries of the Eurozone, should be placed at the heart of the European project: Germany, France, Italy in close partnership with the Commission. This would be a fundamental progress.
This project would provide a new dynamic and would give meaning and future to the Euro. It would mobilise an extremely wide spectrum of civil societies components and their vital forces in favour of the European project, which are currently disoriented and desiring a concrete political impetus: legal and accounting professionals, trade unions, companies, SMEs which are directly concerned and are the essential sources for the creation of wealth and employment, employers’ organisations, universities, the young people, who are the first ones concerned by the future of Europe. It would place corporate, commercial, labour relations law at the heart of the revitalisation of the European project and would enable the mobilisation of all the economic and social stakeholders.
