PAVING THE WAY for GROWTH AND JOBS IN EUROPE

Manufacturing and SME-driven sectors like ceramics are the backbone of the European economy and key drivers of growth and jobs. The recent crisis has underlined the importance of the manufacturing economy and has confirmed that a strong industrial base is of key importance for Europe’s recovery.

EU institutions and national governments should therefore ensure a supportive and predictable policy environment to facilitate the EU’s reindustrialisation.
This can only be achieved if industrial competitiveness is prioritised across all policy areas and tangible measures are implemented to achieve the goal of increasing industry’s share of GDP to 20% by 2020.
