With the new industrial strategy, the EU is finally stepping up its game and taking a more inclusive view on Europeans and their needs. The
POLITICO Europe article signed by Lise Fuhr, Director General of ETNO, and Steven Tas, Chairman to the Executive Board, ETNO, shows how the European Commission’s strategies are leading the way to help citizens and global partners.
