Industry4Europe: new joint paper on "A Governance Structure for an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy"

03/07/18

The European Footwear Confederation (CEC) and other 121 members of the Industry4Europe coalition signed a new joint paper on "A Governance Structure for an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy". 

The paper aims to propose a governance structure which enables the implementation of an ambitious EU Industrial Strategy, based on an informed dialogue between industry, civil society and decision-makers at EU, national, regional and local levels.

More specifically, according to the signatories a future Industrial Strategy governance structure should be based on two pillars:

  1. Ensuring an informed and permanent dialogue between the industry and policy decision-makers in association with civil society stakeholders (trade unions, consumers organisations, NGOs, academia) 
  2. A structure of European Institutions which allows for an Industrial Strategy to be addressed and implemented at highest level.

You can find all the details in the final paper.
