The second edition of the Strategy Council Europe will be held on Tuesday, March 19 at the Royal Museums of Art and History in Brussels.

The Strategy Council Europe represents Deloitte proposal to start a high profile forum of discussion regarding the European project, gathering EU Institutions and both the public affairs and business community of the European Capital, also through an in-depth Deloitte Survey of the citizens’ sentiment towards the Union and its policies.

Following the strong interest triggered by the 2018 edition, Deloitte’s Survey will focus this year on the role of fair and sustainable tax practices as a tool to support the economic and social development of the Union. By highlighting the most relevant challenges for the current tax systems, our aim is to encourage concrete responses and innovative solutions to the needs and concerns of European citizens and businesses.

The results of this analysis will be further discussed with prominent European and Italian stakeholders, including, amongst others:

  • Antonio Tajani, President of the European Parliament
  • Ambassador Maurizio Massari, Permanent Representative of Italy to the EU
  • Daniel Gros, Director at Centre for European Policy Studies
  • James Watson, Director of Economics at BusinessEurope
  • Federico Fubini, Deputy Chief Editor at ‘Corriere della Sera’
