“We are Europeans and our future is in Europe.

The direction is clear: it is towards greater and greater European integration. . . Only a socialist strategy of intervention and investment – locally, regionally, nationally, and at a European level – will achieve our goals: economic success, a better quality of life for all our people, a just and peaceful society.”
