Maurizio Casasco, president of European Entrepreneurs CEA-PME and of the Italian SME Confederation CONFAPI declared yesterday: “What is happening in Ukraine in these hours arouses dismay and deep concern in European citizens and entrepreneurs. This conflict in the heart of Europe comes at a time when the terrible effects of the pandemic crisis have not yet been completely overcome and while small and medium-sized industries, the cornerstone of the continent's economy, are working hard for recovery. We hope that diplomacy and common sense will prevail and that a ceasefire and a peace solution will be reached as soon as possible ”.

As confederation we think in this moment of the millions of Ukrainian citizens that are living hours of fear for their lives, which were totally overturned in a day. "We call for European solidarity together with appropriate answers from European Institutions and all EU-Member States, in order to bring back the parties to the negotiation tables. The EU must protect the lives of its citizens, strengthen economy and ensure trade further on. That is what the Union should stand for", declared Markus Jerger, co-president of European Entrepreneurs CEA-PME and Executive Chairman of Der Mittelstand.BVMW, the German Association for SMEs.

Finally, European Entrepreneurs CEA-PME calls for an adequate compensation of all those SMEs that will suffer from costs of the sanctions that the EU has decided on, and asks the EU to offer fast information, market intelligence, transitory rules and funds in order not to suffocate the current pace of economic recovery."
