Some EU industries are doing just fine. But European industry is also in a tough spot. The economic crisis has shaken the financial system, international competition is increasing, resource prices are gyrating and demographic change threatens to lead to a skills gap. How can European industry continue to prosper under such circumstances? And how can a green economy help the necessary re-industrialisation in Europe? Join the Greens/EFA Group for a lively discussion on industrial policy with a keynote from Sylvie Lemmet, Director of the Division of Technology, Industry and Economy at UNEP.
