Industry4Europe, a coalition of 154 industry Associations including FEICA, published a Press Release following the much anticipated New Industrial Strategy for Europe.
The European Commission recognises industry to be 'central to Europe’s future progress and prosperity' and announced a comprehensive set of measures aimed at “maintaining European industry’s global competitiveness and a level playing field, at home and globally, making Europe climate-neutral by 2050 and shaping Europe’s digital future”.
Launched three years ago, the Industry4Europe coalition has consistently called on the European Institutions to develop an ambitious EU industrial strategy that helps Europe remain a hub for a leading, smart, innovative and sustainable industry, and that provides quality jobs and benefits all Europeans and future generations. Last November, the Coalition published the Joint Paper 'A long-term strategy for Europe’s industrial future: from words to action’.
The sector Associations of the Coalition will now carefully review and assess all individual measures proposed by the European Commission. In the Press Release, Industry4Europe thanks the Commission for its hard work and for identifying the main pillars of the Industrial Strategy 'that echo those recommended by the Coalition'.
