Radu Dumitrescu wins SME Week Youth Essay Competition 2019
Radu Dumitrescu, 24 year-old from Romania, was proclaimed the winner of this year’s SME Week Youth Essay Competition during the European Commission’s SME Assembly.
In his speech as potential EU Commissioner for SMEs and Entrepreneurship he said:
“So, what is our goal? To put the new industries at the heart of European SMEs – to create ‘Silicon Europe’. We can no longer afford to linger in coal, petrol, manufacturing jobs, farming and hard labour. They cannot be abandoned either, but the way to the future is through the digital, the online, the streaming and the virtual. That is where the state of the future will be, where voters will have their say, where poets will forge their dreams and where love will take hold of couples. But first, it is where money will be made – and European SMEs will pioneer the way during my term.”
The other finalists of this year’s SME Week Youth Essay competition were:
- Enzo Ercole Ribagnac (France)
- Estelle Beuve (France)
- Aureliano Ulndreaj (Albania)
