For an ambitious EU industrial strategy: going further

24 October 2017

CECIMO and the Industry4Europe partners drafted the Joint Reaction Paper “For an ambitious EU industrial strategy: going further”, which analyses the EC Communication (Renewed EU Industrial policy strategy) in some targeted sectors:

  • Business-Friendly Environment and Governance
  • Skills & Training
  • Research and Innovation
  • Access to Finance
  • Internal Market
  • Trade and International Market Access

For each of them, the paper advances some recommendations in some strategic issues, as, for example, skills gap and administration burdens.

The document was presented on 23 October 2017 at the Council Industry Working Party at the invitation of the Estonian Presidency. Members States praised the document and the quality of this collective work and will soon draft the Council Conclusions. “CECIMO continues to contribute to this collaborative dialogue and ensure that MT industry’s needs and concerns are heard and acknowledged”, says Filip Geerts, CECIMO Director General.
