Joint industry manifesto calls on EU and national leaders to relaunch Europe’s competitiveness

15 Apr 2024,

EGMF joins forces with 84 associations in co-signing a European industry manifesto, calling on EU and national leaders to relaunch Europe’s competitiveness. With the EU starting a new legislative cycle facing key economic, social and geopolitical challenges, it is now time to build a plan that reclaims and boosts the Single Market and shapes a regulatory environment where the European industry remains competitive and innovative.

EGMF and the other co-signatories urge EU policy makers to focus on the following five priorities.

  • Reposition Europe as a global trade leader by creating a platform that allows EU companies to stay competitive across borders and addressing unfair competition
  • Unlock the full potential of the Single Market which is essential to facilitate the twin digital and green transition
  • Strengthen cooperation between industry and public authorities to bring the innovation gap
  • Implement policies that reinforce education, reskilling, and upskilling to address current skills’ shortages
