Published on : 25-Apr-2018

The Italian Initiative Group organized, in collaboration with Deloitte and with the high patronage of the Permanent Representative of Italy to the EU, the first Strategy Council Europe, an event held on Tuesday, April 24 at the Bibliothèque Solvay in Brussels.

The first edition of the Strategy Council Europe has represented Deloitte’s contribution to facilitate a high-profile discussion regarding the future of the European project, gathering EU Institutions as well as the public affairs and business communities of the European capital. This initiative was also based upon an in-depth Survey of the European citizens’ sentiment towards the Union and its policies.

The results of this analysis have been further discussed with prominent Italian and European stakeholders, including, amongst others:

  • Antonio Tajani, President of the European Parliament
  • David Sassoli, Vice-President of the European Parliament
  • Ambassador Maurizio Massari, Permanent Representative of Italy to the EU
  • Enzo Moavero Milanesi, Director of the School of Law at University ‘LUISS Guido Carli’ and Italy’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation
  • Markus J. Beyrer, Director General of BusinessEurope
  • Daniel Gros, Director at CEPS

The evening before the event, the President of GII Roberto Zangrandi represented the Italian Initiative Group in a restricted dinner at the European Parliament. The dinner, hosted by MEP Silvia Costa for a selected number of guests, has benefited with the participation of the President Emeritus of the European Council, Herman Van Rompuy.
