Regions and Cities Shaping Industrial Policy in the Globalisation Era
"Local and regional authorities have developed much experience in the field of economic and industrial development, which makes us vital for the implementation of this flagship of the Europe 2020 Strategy." Michael Schneider, President of the EPP Group in the Committee of the Regions.
At the launch of the Europe 2020 strategy, the EPP Group in the Committee of the Regions made a call for all levels of government to be engaged on an equal footing in its design and implementation.
In this endeavour of having a partnership-based strategy which delivers on the ground, and in the context of the European Week of Cities and Regions – OPEN DAYS - the EPP-CoR Group dedicated a specific seminar to the "industrial policy for a globalisation era" flagship initiative.
Visions on a new industrial policy for Europe and concrete case studies were presented by regions and cities, demonstrating their contribution to shaping implementing industrial policy in the globalisation era.
