Joint Declaration for an EU industrial strategy


Feb 27, 2017

Together with 124 other European industry associations, Europump has co-signed a Joint Declaration for an ambitious EU industrial strategy. The Declaration reminds of the importance of the European industry, which employs over 34 million people in supply chains comprising hundreds of thousands of SMEs and larger suppliers. These need to be supported if the EU is to  remain a competitive global industrial power. The signatories call on the European Commission to reaffirm its commitment to reaching the target of 20% of GDP from industry. The Commission is also invited to propose an Action Plan to tackle the challenges that industrial sectors are facing.
