Former European Commission President José Manuel Barroso said Europe is in “great danger” and warned the European Union must stay united.

In an interview with Euronews and Euronews Romania at the European People’s Party Congress in Bucharest, Barroso said Europe has to be more competitive in technology and the green transition without putting the bloc's industries and agriculture at a disadvantage.

The former EC president made an appeal to the EPP leadership to “listen to the people and their priorities”.
