Our commitment to EU institutions
This is a time of challenge and change for the European Union (EU). To emerge stronger and more prosperous than before, the EU aims to steer its economy back to growth and competitiveness and to deepen reforms that strengthen the single market. It aspires to policies that are aligned with the real needs of citizens and that bring demonstrable impact. It seeks to make the world and Europe more prosperous and stable by strengthening its role as a global player. In short, it aims to build a stronger Europe equipped to address the challenges of a changing world.
At EY, our purpose is to build a better working world for our clients, our people and our communities. We strive to help create a legacy of improved business performance, confidence and trust. A global mindset, diversity and a collaborative culture inspire EY professionals to ask better questions, co-create more innovative answers and provide long-lasting results.
A better working world also means collaborating with EU institutions on answering big, complex issues and helping provide a growing, stable, smart, sustainable and united Europe. We stand committed to using our international experience, network of relationships in government and private sector insights to support the EU institutions in attaining this Europe.

The outcomes of this session will be used to design working sessions at the International Policy Forum to help craft specific policy recommendations to the G20 finance ministers.
