In recent years, industrial policy has become an even more important topic in the Community debate. Globalisation and competition from new emerging countries have made it necessary for industry to adapt to structural changes.
In order to stimulate industrial competitiveness, the European Union (EU) combines a horizontal approach, aimed at creating stimulating framework conditions in various strategic areas, with a sectoral approach in which account is taken of the particular characteristics of each sector.
