Independent Retail Europe launches its Manifesto for 2024 EU Elections: "Together for a Stronger Independent Retail Sector in the EU"

Independent Retail Europe – the European trade association that represents groups of independent retailers and local retailers – released today its manifesto for the EU elections in which it calls on candidates to the EU elections, European political groups and the European Commission to adopt a pro-independent retail agenda in the next EU mandate. The manifesto outlines the sector’s key priorities, with a strong focus on the competitiveness of independent and SME retail, the preservation of the endangered Single Market, and help for retailers with the digital and green transitions.
