European Union/Europe Day – Statement by Laurent Fabius (May 9, 2014)
Today, on Europe Day, I pay tribute to the Europeans’ action to further growth and solidarity on our continent.
We face the same major challenges: to implement effective economic and social policies, increase our attractiveness and employment, maintain Europe’s standing in the international arena, work for peace and help fight climate change.
In the run-up to new appointments being made in the European institutions, France is more committed than ever, along with its partners, to ensuring Europe moves forward.
