The European Chemical Regions Network (ECRN) participated in the EU Industry Day on 28 February 2017 to discuss the future of European industry with 400 participants, high level policy makers, influencers and industry representatives. The EU Industry Day was the first of its kind, aimed at taking stock of existing actions to support industry in contributing to jobs and growth in Europe and stimulating debate on a comprehensive EU Industrial Policy. ECRN supports a strategic approach to industrial competitiveness and will continue to participate in and contribute to further discussions and policy development. Strong and coherent industrial policy at the European level is also in the interests of the European chemical regions, and regional actors are ready and willing to play their part in the way working towards a common strategy.
