Launch of the Automotive Regions Alliance strengthens industrial ecosystems

30 June 2022

Under the EU Committee of the Regions (CoR), the Automotive Regions Alliance (ARA) has been created to support a fair and successful mobility transition for regions along the entire value chain, guaranteeing that no region is left behind.

The Automotive Skills Alliance (ASA), of which CLEPA, ACEA, CECRA and ETRMA are founding members, is a key initiative in support of the sector transformation through identifying needs for a skilled workforce and facilitating the regional implementation in close cooperation with industry, academia and regions.

The automotive sector welcomes the initiative by the European CoR to establish the ARA and proposes a strategic partnership between the ASA and ARA, given the synergies and shared goals to facilitate the green and digital sector transformation.
