Treaty of Rome: 60 years of peace and a better life for Europeans, says Manfred Weber

The Treaty of Rome that founded the European Union 60 years ago has ended centuries of conflict and improved Europeans’ daily lives. EPP Group Chairman Manfred Weber comments on how far the EU has come and the path ahead. The Euro, the Erasmus student exchange programme and better border protection are some of its accomplishments. Mr Weber also calls on European voters not to be swayed by populists in this crucial election year.
