EC communication on industrial policy published

Brussels, 28 October 2010 – The EC has published the last Communication on “An integrated industrial policy for the globalisation era”.

European Commission Vice-President Antonio Tajani, responsible for industry and entrepreneurship said: “Industry is at the heart of Europe and indispensable for finding solutions to the challenges of our society, today and in the future. Europe needs industry and industry needs Europe. We must tap into the full potential of the Single Market, its 500 million consumers and its 20 million entrepreneurs.”

Promoting the creation and growth of small and medium-sized enterprises has to be at the core of EU industrial policy. Moreover, the transition to a sustainable economy has to be seized as an opportunity to strengthen competitiveness. Only a European Industrial Policy targeting competitiveness and sustainability can muster the critical mass of change and coordination needed for success.
