During the informal meeting of ministers of the EU Competitiveness Council in Vilnius on 22–23 July, the EU Internal Market and Industry ministers stressed the importance of SOEs for the Member States’ economy and competitiveness. The Ministers encouraged the Member States to share the recently gained experience in the field of SOE to enhance the performance of SOEs.
