Competitiveness

Europe needs to transform itself to keep pace with global developments in order to sustain and strengthen the well-being of our societies. If we are to lay the foundations of our future competitiveness and prosperity, Europe must offer an attractive environment for investment. A modern industrial and technological base will play a central role in this essential transformation as well as the completion of the Single Market.

ERT monitors the progress of European competitiveness and makes recommendations for practical actions to policy-makers and governments.
