IPC Issues Position Paper on Priorities for an Ambitious EU Industrial Policy Strategy


Reading time ( words)

IPC – Association Connecting Electronics Industries has issued a position paper, “IPC Priorities for an Ambitious EU Industrial Policy Strategy” in support of EU Industry Day.

Last September, the European Commission published a Communication on a renewed EU industrial policy strategy that emphasizes crucial aspects for the electronics industry, such as the need for substantial investment in advanced manufacturing, skilled and talented workforce as well as research and innovation.

EU Industry Day is designed to update stakeholders on the Commission's strategic approach to industrial policy and actions to further develop industrial competitiveness in Europe. During this forum, stakeholders contributing to European industrial competitiveness can showcase their activities, learn from each other, discuss cross-cutting issues and develop joint visions for the future.

“IPC welcomes the EU Industrial Policy and related efforts to address these issues that are critical for our members,” said IPC President and CEO John Mitchell. “With more than 650 members in Europe, the majority of which are small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), IPC has long advocated for an ambitious industrial agenda for Europe.

“I also encourage our member companies to participate in IMPACT Brussels 2018 this fall, when we will meet with EU officials to address the EU Industrial Policy and other issues, such as environmental regulations. A save-the-date for IMPACT Brussels 2018 will be sent to our members soon.”
