Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe

 

We want a stronger and more stable European Union, with the means to tackle the concerns of Europe's citizens on the big issues where Member States alone cannot. The EU needs to complete its Internal Market in energy and digital services whilst leveraging capital markets to help fund the new infrastructure that will power our economy in the years ahead and create new and sustainable jobs. Europe must also remain true to its values and uphold fundamental rights of freedom, equality and non-discrimination. The EU also needs to change institutionally, eliminating waste and operating more efficiently.
