Fostering structural change : an industrial policy for an enlarged Europe

Policies & Issues: Industrial Policy
In this position paper Orgalime comments on the Commission's Communication on Industrial Policy (COM (2004) 274) of 20 April 2004. While we welcome the EU institutions’ increasing awareness of the structural changes taking place within industry, Orgalime believes that the Commission’s analysis is somewhat complacent about the future of industry. We therefore recommend that the Communication should be followed up by practical action at a general policy level by both individual governments and by the EU institutions and at a sectoral level, for those measures which are sector specific. In our position we suggest a number of areas where we feel action is needed and propose to collaborate with the Commission for the follow up for the industry branches that we represent.
