Last quote by Xavier Bettel

No, I said it from the start: tax harmonisation is something that is very important for Luxembourg. Not that everyone should be submitted to the same tax rate, but we need to avoid situations where double-non taxation leads to no taxation at all. My country today is not the same country it was a few years ago. Today, my country is no longer on any blacklist, or greylist, with the OECD or anyone else. So Luxembourg believes that what we need to do is to sit together at a table and discuss how to stop firms not paying any taxes at all. When LuxLeaks happened, everybody said, Aaah, Luxembourg!feedback

Theresa's Brexit. For the moment, we are in suspense.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Luxembourg

We perhaps need Europe, but he too needs Europe. So it is a two-way street. If he thinks he doesn't need Europe, it is a lose-lose situation. But is now important for everyone to go for a win-win situation.feedback

Mar 24 2017 - Luxembourg

Mr. Trump will learn very fast that the EU is not a bunch of 27 grocery shops, where you knock at the door and start doing business. Instead, it is something grand, if we stick together and continue to act together.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

With the digital agenda, for example, we have 28 regulators, we have 28 markets, we are blocked between the United States and Asia, we are caught in a vice. We need to understand that we need a common strategy.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

It is not because a country says 'I do not want to' that we won't advance. We should be able to move forward issue by issue. It will not be a Europe with those who want and those who don't want.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

The problem is that a Europe at two speeds, it's not one speed and then another. It will not be one speed where everyone follows, and the second which no-one will follow.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

On the contrary, the 60-year anniversary is the moment when we look at what works well. It is better to be aware that it works, Europe is born of a project of peace, with two countries, France and Germany, who before, were sometimes shooting at each other.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

We have the enhanced cooperation, as you have seen with Schengen. We started in a few countries, then we grew up country by country. It will be like that with other things, and the euro has been the same. We see it with countries that may be initially chilly towards one or the other.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

Other projects will want to continue working. I do not want to have a stalled Europe, and I will not be a hostage of one or the other on domestic policy issues.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

You say Poland, but once again it is on a case-by-case basis. If Poland wants to block everything, it has to tell us. It will not be, on the one hand, those who move forward and the others at a dead end, even though often we have the impression some want to move backwards. It will be project by project, it is for me a multi-speed Europe where we move forward rather than remain at a standstill.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

Rome is not at a moment of negotiation, Rome is the moment when for 60 years one lives in peace, it marks 60 years of having liberties, having rights, living in a space where I can go to work, I can go to live, I can get married, I can die, I can study, I can be cared for, I can be defended, I can be elected. It is something we must remember.feedback

Mar 22 2017 - Luxembourg

I will not let myself be blocked today because one decides. If one does not want to move forward, it is not the European Union, we are not hostage to one or the other, we continue together. My project is to remain at 27, I would have preferred 28, I respect that decision and regret it. But I want to continue as 27, that's my main purpose, but I don't want us to do nothing. I prefer a two-speed Europe than a stalled Europe.feedback

What has happened in the last few days are really not the values I'm fighting for.feedback

Dec 20 2013 - Luxembourg

It's not a case of wanting to stand out or be different, each has his own style. All I want is to continue in a pro-European, friendly spirit, not confrontational but trying to find solutions, and above all what I appreciate is respect, since I recognise I am not prime minister of the biggest country.feedback

Dec 20 2013 - Luxembourg

No, he has certainly made his mark on summits, but now people will have to do with someone else, and I can tell you the welcome has been very, very warm. Thanks to the people of Luxembourg who made a choice and a parliamentary majority, I've been able to be present among my colleagues today.feedback
