The final nominations for the 27 EU Commission posts have been announced today. Commenting, Kieran O’Keeffe, Head of European Representation at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:

“All the new Commissioners, especially those in key strategic posts, will need to focus on completing the Single Market and building a better business environment, that is conducive to job creation and economic growth.

“With economies across Europe still in a fragile state, there is no room for any Commissioner to be dragging their feet or playing national politics when it comes to making the necessary reforms that will drive recovery and prosperity across the continent.”
