Babiš for FT: the EU should do less and more efficiently

19-07-2018

Prime Minister Andrej Babiš has stressed the need to reform the European Union and return power to national capitals.

In an interview for the Financial Times, Babiš said the principle should be that the EU does less and more efficiently. Over-regulation kills innovation and business, Babis argued.

The Czech prime minister also criticized the EU approach to migrant crisis, calling it “unworkable”. He said the EU should protect its borders better and establish “disembarkation platforms” outside of Europe for migrants rescued at sea.

We have to make a deal, as we did with Turkey, with north African states like Libya and Tunisia and help countries of migrant origin such as Syria in order to resolve this crisis, Babiš said.
