The EVA is among 85 European and national industry associations to have joined forces to make a united call to prevent the risk of de-industrialisation on our continent by relaunching Europe’s competitiveness

The EU enters a new policy cycle at a challenging time, with technology and geopolitics acting as global disruptors, adding pressure to an already difficult economic situation. Now is the time to start building a strategic plan that unlocks the Single Market’s full potential and builds a regulatory environment for EU industry to remain globally competitive.

European industry’s demands are clear. The Manifesto calls on EU and national leaders to:

  • Reposition Europe as global leader in trade
  • Embrace a horizontal approach to EU Single Market and competitiveness
  • Build a joined-up strategy to boost value chain resilience, protecting jobs and consumers
  • Bridge the innovation gap
  • Nurture talents and skills
