The General Assembly of the SME UNION, the business organization of the European People's Party, elected Peter Jungen as its new President during its Congress in Athens on 29th of June 2009. Peter Jungen, Chairman of Peter Jungen Holding GmbH, is a German Entrepreneur and Business Angel Investor in start-ups in Europe and USA. He is also Co-Chairman of the Economic and Social Policy Committee of the EPP. After the election the new President Jungen declared: "It is to be well understood that the way out of the global economic and financial crisis will only be successfully achieved by enhancing innovation, strengthening entrepreneurship and encouraging start-ups. This is the time of entrepreneurs; Europe needs a Renaissance of entrepreneurship. Therefore, politics have to concentrate on improving framework conditions for making it easier to grow businesses and to start them, as SMEs will be part of the solution. It is also important for the entrepreneurs to actively participate in the debate regarding the Social Market Economy in Europe. We will increase our efforts for an even closer cooperation with the newly elected European Parliament particularly with the SME Circle, with the incoming European Commission, particularly with the Commissioner in charge of SMEs and with the incoming Swedish EU Council Presidency. Further to the election of the new President Peter Jungen, the Vice-President and the leader of the parliamentary group of the Austrian People's party ÖVP, Karlheinz Kopf, as a member of the Presidency, was elected Co-President.

Peter Jungen, SME UNION President, underlined in a press release that data by the European Central Bank (ECB) prove that new credits to the private sector have increased in the last couple of months albeit not as strong as in the last years. For instance in Germany, the total amount of credit lending to the private sector is 60 billion EUR higher than a year ago. One of the reasons why there may be a credit squeeze looming is the fact that securitisation has almost dried out. Some statements of Ministers of Finance indicate helplessness and a lack of understanding of the present situation. The fact that the same governments have argued against a European stress test for banks contributes to a lack of trust among banks. Peter Jungen stated that bank lending is even more important in EU than in the United States because loan financing plays a much bigger role here than in the US where equity financing is much stronger.

SME UNION President Peter Jungen welcomes Tax Reform in Hungary
...
Peter Jungen: This is in particular good news for Small and Medium Entrepreneurs who certainly will be encouraged by a more simple tax system and lower tax rates. With a view to the ongoing debate about public debt in Europe it should be understood that tax revenues are more dependent on economic growth created by entrepreneurial activities then on tax rates Countries with a low corporate tax rate and a simple tax system have higher revenues as a percentage of GDP than other countries which have higher tax rates. So for instance before the crisis Ireland had the highest corporate tax revenues as a percentage of GDP compared to all other EU member countries with a tax rate lower than in almost every other country.
