Statement for the Commission's Task Force on Markets for Advanced Manufacturing

Published: 5 June 2013

Policies & Issues: Industrial Policy

Orgalime strongly welcomes the initiative of DG Enterprise and Industry to create a task force to see how, in practical terms, to follow up on the proposals included in the Communication 'A stronger European Industry for growth and economic recovery' which we believe provides the foundations for a progressive shift towards a European framework which is manufacturing friendly and which will lead to more manufacturing investment in the EU and more jobs. 

While we can understand the imperatives driving the Commission to seek short term progress for reaching this goal, we believe, that, with the levers in the Commission’s hands, visible short term outcomes may be hard to deliver. Nevertheless, we suggest short term actions which will begin to redress the balance towards a fully sustainable approach to manufacturing in Europe where the economic pillar has been neglected for many years...
