AIM welcomes Von der Leyen’s plans for an EU “grounded in values and bold in action”


President Von der Leyen delivered on 15 September her much awaited State of the Union address, a speech that was bathed in solidarity and European values, as it should be. The three pillars of the European Commission’s programme, key transitions of this century, were at the centre of discourse: digital, social and green.
AIM reacted to the address with a press release. We stressed the importance of solidarity in overcoming the pandemic. AIM also subscribed to the Commission’s plans for better preparedness, and welcomed the announcement of a new EU Care Strategy, an area where it had been calling for action for many years. The Press Release also highlights the need for more ambitious action for tackling climate change.
