President Marcegaglia addresses first EU Industry Day

"We see some positive economic developments in Europe, but many industrial sectors face severe challenges, that's why we need to deliver now", President Emma Marcegaglia said at the first EU Industry Day on 28 February 2017. She discussed ‘Snapshot of the current state of the EU industry’ together with ITRE President Jerzy Buzek, Committee of the Regions President Markku Markkula and Peter Scherrer from ETUC. The event was hosted by Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen and it is planned to continue the format on an annual basis. Marcegaglia concluded that "it is important to develop an ambitious action plan with a clear timetable because mainstreaming competitiveness is delivering only occasionally".
