Going further for an #Industry4Europe strategy - Joint Paper


CECED, within the 119-strong #Industry4Europe initiative launched earlier this year, has been supporting the development of a new Joint Response Paper designed to respond to the European Commission's recent communication entitled "investing in a smart, innovative and sustainable industry". 

#Industry4Europe published the final Joint Response Paper today (23rd October). The paper focuses on a series of important topics, including:

- importance of a business-friendly environment and governance;
- skills and training;
- research and innovation;
- access to finance;
- the internal market;
- trade and international market access.

On 13th September, CECED welcomed the announcement of a renewed industrial strategy for Europe, made by the President of the European Commission Jean Claude Juncker, in his annual State of the Union speech at the European Parliament.
