CEEMET statement to EU Council meeting highlighting industrial competitiveness


Innovation & Enterprise

CEEMET have sent a statement to the Heads of State and Government attending the European Council meeting today and tomorrow in Brussels, where the key issue of industrial competitiveness will be discussed. The EU is at a cross-roads. At this meeting, European leaders have to show leadership and agree swift, well-coordinated and consistent policy actions. Full and effective implementation of industrial policy in the EU is central, as highlighted in the Commission Communication For a European Industrial Renaissance earlier this year. Whereas the current debate is focused on competitiveness factors such as international trade, better access to secure and affordable energy and modernising infrastructure, we also have to highlight the importance of dynamic and inclusive labour markets in Europe with a skilled a motivated workforce. Dynamic labour markets are pivotal to recovery in order to create new jobs and to bring down the too high levels of unemployment currently seen across Europe, in particular for the young generation.

With kind regards,
