In the context of the ongoing definition of recovery measures, the EBSA issues today a new statement calling the European Commission to recognise and further enable business services’ essential role in helping Europe reopen. While supporting the European Commission Skills Agenda and the European Single Market barriers report, EBSA  members believe that further action is needed to i) revitalise the Single Market for Business Services, ii) reinstate efficient procurement practices focusing on quality, iii) ease liquidity access and iv) foster a flexible, sector-specific approach to unemployment support schemes.
