Industrial Strategy for Europe

In February 2017, 130 industrial sectors adopted for the first time a Joint Declaration in which they called on the European Commission to adopt a long-term Action Plan to tackle the challenges that the industrial sectors are facing.

After the publication on 13 September 2017 of the communication on “Investing in a smart, innovative and sustainable Industry – A renewed EU Industrial Policy Strategy”, the signatories of this Joint paper – representing a wide range of industrial sectors – came together to analyse the document and react by identifying key objectives and/or missing measures that should be at the heart of any ambitious EU industrial strategy.
