EnginEurope - Follow-up

Published: 4 April 2008

Policies & Issues: Industrial Policy

In its report issued in May 2007, EnginEurope, the working group set up by the European Commission, six member states, and the social partners in the mechanical engineering industry submitted some 65 recommendations which they considered as key points that need to be addressed by the Member States, the industry or the European Commission for Europe’s mechanical engineering position to maintain its position as one of Europe’s major sectors which contributes the highest value added of the EU’s manufacturing output.

Some of the recommendations have already been taken up; others still need to be so.

This position paper therefore highlights some of the issues which are most urgent and important for Orgalime’s mechanical engineering branch at the level of industrial policy.
