At the beginning of July, on the eve of the International Day of Cooperatives, the European Parliament will discuss in plenary session the report “Contribution of cooperatives to overcoming the crisis” which stresses the importance of cooperatives in the EU in economic, social and employment terms, with a particular attention to cooperatives active in industry and services. It is now in the height of the debate phase.

The document has been presented by the Italian MEP from the group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament and was also the author of the initiative report on Social economy in 2009.
