20 Years in the EU

= Big Plus for Business

The Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic will commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Czech Republic’s entry into the EU with a special campaign. Titled “20 Years in the EU = Big Plus for Business,” this campaign, organized jointly by the Confederation and domestic companies, will mark this year’s milestone of the Czech Republic’s accession to the European Union. Throughout the year, the Confederation and companies aim to remind through graphical visuals, not only on social media but also through success stories of domestic businesses associated with the Czech Republic’s EU accession.

“The European Union is a symbol of cooperation, innovation, and opportunities for growth and prosperity for us all. As our survey has shown, although companies may have reservations about the functioning of the EU, they value the Czech Republic’s membership and appreciate its benefits. This is precisely what we aim to remind people of through our campaign: that as entrepreneurs and citizens of the Czech Republic, we have been part of Europe for 20 years, and thanks to that, the standard of living is improving for all of us”.

Jan Rafaj, President of the Confederation of Industry of the Czech Republic

They have also presented the priorities of Czech industry for European institutions in 2024-29 under the motto: “Not after the European parliamentary elections in 2024, but right now it is the right time to strive for setting realistic European political goals for the next mandate”.
