The European Liberal Forum in cooperation with the Institute for Politics and Society hosts a business breakfast called On the Move or at a Dead End?
The European Commission’s introduction of the Mobility Package has been met with a mixed reception. The new legislation imposes greater restrictions on the road transport sector, which could massively damage businesses who rely on cross-border transportation. One of the changes entitles drivers to be paid the local remuneration level including all benefits if they work at least for 3 days in a month within a country. For small businesses in particular, these cost surges could lead to their closure, which has prompted accusations of protectionism.
Who will benefit and who will lose from the implementation of the Mobility Package? How will the implementation of these rules work in practice? What will be the consequences for the European market? What will the real cost of the Mobility Package for Czech businesses, and businesses across the union? What can be done to protect small businesses?
