We are the voice of enterprise in Sweden.
What trade policy does the EU need for the years to come? A seemingly straightforward question, but one that is increasingly difficult to give an equally straightforward answer to.
Confederation of Swedish Enterprise wants the EU to keep having an open trade policy. That was today communicated to the European Commission.
The European Commission has today submitted its proposal for a Directive on adequate minimum wages in the EU Member States. “Our initial assessment is that it constitutes an unacceptable intervention in the Swedish labour market model,” says John Wahlstedt, General Counsel for Labour Law at the Confederation of Swedish Enterprise.
The Swedish “Tax on Fashion” has been heavily criticised by Swedish organisations, companies, and the Swedish authorities such as the Swedish Tax Agency and the Swedish Chemicals Agency. Yet the criticism is not limited to Sweden; it is also international.
The Confederation of Swedish Enterprise remains strongly committed to taking part in ensuring that Europe becomes the world’s first climate neutral continent. With this in mind, we would like to submit a few standpoints to the ongoing consultation on the possible revision of the Energy Taxation Directive (ETD).
