85 European and national industry associations have joined forces to make a united call to prevent the risk of de-industrialisation on our continent by relaunching Europe’s competitiveness!

The EU enters a new policy cycle at a challenging time, with technology and geopolitics acting as global disruptors, adding pressure to an already difficult economic situation. Now is the time to start building a strategic plan that unlocks the Single Market’s full potential and builds a regulatory environment for EU industry to remain globally competitive.

European industry’s demands are clear. We call for the next EU mandate to:

  1. Reposition Europe as a global leader in trade
  2. Embrace a horizontal approach to the EU Single Market and competitiveness
  3. Build a joined-up strategy to boost value chain resilience, protecting jobs and consumers
  4. Bridge the innovation gap
  5. Nurture talents and skills
