UNITEE plays a crucial role in Europe as it is the only organisation representing entrepreneurs and professionals with a migrant background, whom we refer to as « New Europeans »: people who live in Europe but have connections with more than just the country where they live.
Through its national federations and associations, UNITEE as an umbrella organization that represents entrepreneurs and business professionals across 23 European countries and from all the major sectors of the European economy.
UNITEE’s first objective is to raise awareness of our members’ unique contributions to Europe’s economic growth, which have so far been insufficiently acknowledged. The office in Brussels is involved in strategic communication and advocacy activities. We also launched a blog dedicated to EU affairs and we have developed our own magazine, The New European. In addition, UNITEE organises conferences and roundtables on issues that are relevant to our members.
