ALDE Party sets vision on key topics

During the 2021 ALDE eCongress, delegates voted and adopted a range of resolutions covering topical issues 

Responsible and smart spending for sustainable growth and jobs 

Responsible and smart spending of the national and EU temporary recovery funds is key to re-start the economy and boost jobs. ALDE Party believes that job creation needs to be prioritised and aligned with the green and digital transitions. The allocation of EU recovery funds needs to be conditioned to the respect common EU values, conditioned to respect for the rule of law. Moreover, more free trade and diversifying supply chains will help Europe’s recovery and resilience.

Lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic 

For European liberals, the COVID-19 pandemic is an opportunity for reflection, new thinking, and progress. We call for a greater EU coordinating role for tackling healthcare emergencies and the strengthening of the EU health system. We urge the EU to apply the principle of conditionality to ensure the respect of rule of law, as well as to restore fundamental rights and freedoms 

Open hearts, open minds and open borders are at the core of the European idea. ALDE Party calls for the restore of the four freedoms of the European single market – free movement of goods, capital, services and people – which are prerequisites for the economic recovery of the EU as well as political and social benefits in the EU.

The Outcomes of the Conference on the Future of Europe (COFOE) 

ALDE Party confirms its position that COFOE should be a genuinely democratic process where citizens, including youth, can make their voices heard. We call for a Convention on the Future of Europe to implement the conclusions and lay the foundation for a European Constitution.

Climate Change - Expand Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) 

ALDE Party believes that Europe has the responsibility to take the lead in reducing CO2 emissions. We call for examining opening the ETS system to additional sectors; practical steps to reducing EU’s greenhouse emissions by 55% by 2030 and reaching net-zero emissions by 2050; and to use the liberal way to act on climate through the use market forces, investments and innovative energy solutions.
