State of the Union 2017 – Industrial Policy Strategy: Investing in a smart, innovative and sustainable industry

In his annual State of the Union address, President Jean-Claude Juncker stated: "I want to make our industry stronger and more competitive. The new Industrial Policy Strategy we are presenting today will help our industries stay or become the world leader in innovation, digitisation and decarbonisation."


The renewed EU Industrial Policy Strategy brings together all existing and new horizontal and sectoral initiatives into a comprehensive industrial strategy. It also clarifies the tasks ahead for all players involved and sets out the fora – an annual Industry Day, the first edition of which took place in February 2017, and a High Level Industrial Roundtable – that will allow in particular industry and civil society to steer industrial policy actions in the future.
