On September 18, the European Commission presented a renewed EU Industrial Policy Strategy for a world leading industry in innovation, digitisation and decarbonisation.

Industry is at the heart of the Juncker Commission’s political priorities since the beginning of the mandate, the Commission said, adding that now the EU’s executive arm brings together all horizontal and sector-specific initiatives to support industry into a comprehensive strategy.

The strategy announces new initiatives in the areas of circular economy, mobility, intellectual property, public procurement, skills and sustainable finance, in addition to the proposals on trade, investment screening, cybersecurity and data announced by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker in his State of the Union address on September 13. It also clarifies the tasks ahead for all actors involved and sets out the fora – an annual Industry Day, the first edition of which took place in February 2017, and a High Level Industrial Roundtable – that will allow in particular industry and civil society to steer industrial policy actions in the future.
