Action Plan Entrepreneurship 2020 (Communication)

The Commission formulates recommendations to the Member States and outlines some of its own measures intended to promote entrepreneurship in the EU.


Simplifying national employment law, relaxing national inheritance tax requirements in relation to corporate succession and reducing administrative costs improve the framework for companies and start-ups and facilitate job creation. The call for public contracts to be divided into smaller lots does promote SMUs but prevents the economies of scale offered by large concerns thus making public contracts more expensive.
