Social & Economic Affairs

In 1957 the six founding nations of the European Economic Community set out to create a common market with a common competition and trade policy. This project remains central to the European Union. Under the terms of the Maastricht Treaty a monetary union dimension was added to the project.

Today, Art 3.3 of the Treaty of the European Union requires the EU to become “a highly competitive social market economy”. COMECE has welcomed the inclusion of this goal and is calling for social, ecological and contributive justice in the EU.

COMECE  follows socio-economic policies and is assisted in this mission by a Social Affairs Commission.
