More than 90 young politicians from 31 countries met in Zagreb, Croatia from the 5th to the 7th March for the first YEPP council of 2015, hosted by Mladež HDZ and its president, Josip Bilaver.
The Council voted for the “Connecting the Dots of the Single Market” white paper and pledged to support policies that will deepen economic integration and exploit the full potential of the Single Market, the world’s largest economic area.
“The proposals include strengthening the Banking Union, diversifying financing models of the European Investment Bank, harmonising digital laws, improving railway and aviation cooperation between Member States, completing the Energy Union, fully implementing the Services Directive, eliminating remaining barriers to free movement of labour and capital and establishing the European Public Prosecutor’s Office” mentioned Konstantinos Kyranakis, YEPP president.
The young Europeans had a chance to experience Zagreb, the latest capital to join the European Union and the latest country to have elected a centre-right EPP leader, with the huge recent electoral success of Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović and HDZ.
