Part I: Discussing a long-term vision for an EU industrial strategy
A long-term vision for Europe’s industry must seize the benefits and market opportunities from macro-trends that already lie in front of us. This requires a better understanding of the transformations currently under way and the key challenges ahead. Defining a long-term vision is fundamental to steer change and ensure we shape progress according to our values and objectives.
The following panellists will debate this issue, moderated by Alexandre AFFRE, Director of Industrial Affairs of BusinessEurope:

Part II: Discussing headline indicators
The EU has set the objective of reaching 20% of industrial added value by 2020. We stand now at 15,6%, considerably below the target. In view of 2030, it is the moment to reflect upon a new set of meaningful indicators that reflect whether EU is on the right track for a strong and modern European industry, and its position in relation to main competitors.
